What:  Nuragic complex of Palmavera
Province:  Sassari
Area:  Nurra
Municipality:  Alghero

How to get there:
Follow the SS 127 from Alghero towards Porto Conte. Ten km from the town (km 32,5), you will see a sign that leads to the site, on the right.

Description:
The Nuragic complex of Palmavera dates from the XIII century B.C.

The site consists of two central towers, one considerably earlier than the other. There is a protective enclosing wall, and a second outer wall with four corner watch-towers.

The village was built around this central area, with roughly 50 dwellings. These include the meeting room, in which a small model Nuraghe is preserved. This model probably had a religious purpouse.
