Giants’ Tomb ‘Su Quaddu de Nixias’

The significant area of the Giants’ Tomb of ‘Su Quaddu de Nixias’, whose origin is older than the Nuragic phase, was widened in subsequent periods. Ceramic finds brought to light there refer to the phase of Mount Claro and correspond to those related to the nearby nuraghe Trobas. This latter stands upon a rise bordering the pre-historical way to Villanovaforru and presents an unusual layout, with a large basement space and four adjacent rooms. The nuraghe Pitzu Cummu is also noteworthy; it is currently involved in an excavation campaign.
