>what?: a nuragic complex and a hut village
>subregion: Supramonte of Orgosolo
This is a wonderful nuraghe built entirely of blocks of candid limestone. It still has a perfectly intact central tholos (false dome).
It was built on a hill and is surrounded by a small hut village. The huts are also made of limestone.
The white Nuraghe Mereu emerges from the dark green of the surrounding forest of Sas Baddes which is one of the last primigenial forests in the Mediterranean area.
It looks out over the surrounding territory and faces the stunning Gorroppu Gorge the deepest canyon in Europe (400 m).
