Gonnosfanadiga, archaeological area of San Cosimo

Giants’ Tomb of San Cosimo

Along the road connecting Gonnosfanadiga to Arbus lays the archaeological area of San Cosimo, guarding one of the biggest giants’ tombs in Sardinia. Excavation works have unearthed a number of finds, including six intact vases and many potsherds of vessels marked by impressed dots or ribbed reliefs. Necklace beads were found in one of the tombs: they are considered as the most ancient elements of Mycenaean importation in Sardinia, referable to the 15th C. B.C.
