A short distance from the sea, on a granite promontory in Santa Teresa Gallura, the Nuragic civilisation has left some of its most fascinating traces, revealing its intimate daily and spiritual aspects. In the archaeological complex of di Lu Brandali you will travel through time, amidst the houses, ‘workshops’, defensive and funeral buildings of a past that dates back to between the 14th and 10th century BC. The evidence of a distant past stretches along the slopes of the promontory, surrounded by lush Mediterranean scrub. On the top, stretching over staggered levels to take advantage of the rocky formation, stands a nuraghe featuring mixed architectural elements, both ‘corridor-type’ and ‘ tholos-type’: it has a keep surrounded by a secondary defence wall with two towers, one of which was used as a furnace in the centuries that followed.
