On the granite plateau of Selene, a thousand meters above sea level in the deepest part of Ogliastra, the land of longevity, in the midst of a dense wood of holm oaks mixed with chestnuts, oaks, poplars and Mediterranean scrub, is a striking emblem of Nuragic civilisation. The archaeological complex, dating back to a period between the middle and late Bronze Age, is located about six kilometres from the town of Lanusei, in a beautiful environmental setting to visit on foot or by bike, travelling along picturesque paths. The site consists of the Nuraghe Gennacili, surrounded by an agglomeration of around 200 huts and defensive walls and two Tombs of Giants, about half a kilometre from a residential area and from two sacred springs.
