In the Sassari area there is a place where the pre-Nuraghic remnants ‘merge’ with the Nuragic monuments: it is the necropolis of Sa Figu, the most important prehistoric heritage of the territory of Ittiri. It extends along the northern edge of the Coros plateau that gives its name to a Logudorese sub-region. Four kilometres from the town, the archaeological area can be reached from the sanctuary of San Maurizio by climbing up to the peak. The complex is composed of eleven hypogea, a megalithic circle and the base of an archaic Nuraghe (or ‘protonuraghe’). It has survived at least three prehistoric eras: the late Neolithic (end of 4th millennium BC), when the first nucleus of Domus de Janas was excavated; the Eneolithic and Copper age; plus the Late and Mid Bronze, when hypogeum ‘architectural façades’ were widespread.
