Archeological site

This site is a paradise for students of archaeology. For average tourists, it was ok. Walk was tough!

Archaeology and stunning coastal views
Apr 2019 • Business
Its a little walk to get to the site but the tower is interesting and the views down the coast across the narrow rocky vallet ate worth the visit on their own. Take an icecream at the nearby Cafe rural afterwards.

Amazing site overlooking the gulf
Sep 2018 • Friends
Loved this Nuraghe complex! It was made far more enjoyable as the young woman whom we bought tickets from was extremely knowledgeable about the Nuragic civilisation and history. The site is well excavated and you get a sense of the uses of these stones over time - carved by the Nuragic people, reused by the Romans, then shepherds, and then used in the war. Amazing! Worth spending about an hour here.

Fascinating
Sep 2018 • Couples
If archaeological sights interest you (as they do me) then this is well worth going to. If coming from Dorgali, it is a few kilometres down the windy mountain road on the way to Cala Gonone. Keep you eye out for the turn off to the right as there is no warning beforehand. From the car park it is a 5 minute walk to the gates and a further 5 minutes to the ticket office. The guide in the ticket office was very generous with her time and gave us the most interesting information about the Nuraghe people and the Neolithic Age. This made our subsequent walk around the site much more interesting as there is not much other information apart from a small brochure. From the site you have both the fascinating remains of these Nuraghe people and the stunning views across the bay and down the steep cliffs to the sea below. It is well worth the 4 Euro entrance. Be aware that it is closed between midday and 3pm.

Very interesting site and one of the best enriching cultural experiences that I had with a cultural guide.

The guide on site, holder of a Master in Archeology, really knew everything about this historical site and about Sardinia in general. Truly reccomended!

Worth an hour to wander around this interesting site.
The available guide is pretty basic but nough to get a feel for the history of the place.
Fabulous views over the bay.

Have to walk a little way to find it from parking the car.

No obvious parking in the countryside after the sign. But a charming welcome and useful information, very low entry cost and simply stunning views. Worth going. It won't take more than an hour so plan other things afterwards.

Nuraghe Mannu

A rough archeological site. Some labeling or a more detailed guide would be useful. You can wander over the ruins and climb the tower. Quite a long walk from the car park but worth it for 3 euros.

Amazing view from an ancient place
May 2017 • Couples
Small but incredible place! The view is breathtaking. The history that the guide told us is really interesting. She told us many interesting things not only about the local culture. I definitely recommend a visit.

€3 for guide or no guide - go no guide!
Oct 2016 • Friends
The area is well signed and the track a little bumpy, but nothing a little hire car can't manage. We arrived shortly after the morning opening to see a group of tourists already listening to a talk in Italian. The guide asked our nationality and said we could go into the office and collect a written information sheet in English, and pay on our way out. Seemed sensible. She seemed somewhat surprised and a little rude when we stepped back outside to read in the shade 'What are you doing?!' 'Reading' at which point she made a joke in Italian to the other tourists. We happily took ourselves round and drank in the views. Beyond the main tower there isn't a whole lot to see, but the views make the place so if you have time it is well worth it. The guide tried to reel us in for a talk on our way out, but after ten minutes we hadn't got much further than the ancient Egyptians and mining for metals across Europe!
