38 tombs carved into the rock known as domus de janas date back from 3000 BC. In some of the chambers you can make out the sculptural décor. Its possible to crawl into the bigger of the chambers. The audio guide is very informative.

Well worth the visit and really interesting. Combine this with a visit to Nuraghe di Primavera and you can get a reduced price entry for the two, which are contrasting archaeological sites from different periods

It was only when we turned on the (€3) audio tour did it really strike us how old this site was. 4200bc is a long, long time ago and I can't remember ever visiting a site with anything that ancient in it - at least...More

We got a bus from Alghero through fascinating lanes. A site much under visited but we were fascinated and welcomed.

Sardinia is full of hirstoric ruins and Agnhelu Ruju is one of them. This was a necropolis and you shall take some time to walk all around and see it. Interesting!
