Ussaramanna, Nuraghe San Pietro

Nuraghe San Pietro

Located inside the inhabited centre, the nuraghe was named after the homonymous church, now destroyed. It is a quadrilobate nuraghe formed by circular towers connected between them by rectilinear curtain walls. The keep is better conserved compared to the remaining part of the construction and reaches a height of 7 metres. It consists of a circular room, built in sandstone block, with two niches. The entranceway opens into a wide, splayed corridor, covered by an ogee vault, now partly collapsed. On the left of the corridor are the ruins of a staircase, once used to access the upper storeys.
