The archaeological site stands on a rise on the boundary between Barbagia and Ogliastra, close to the Flumendosa river, among granite, porphyry and schist outcrops. The complex includes a large 'megaron' temple and other sacred buildings and huts. Close by is a three-lobed nuraghe. Excavations have dated the site to the Late and Final Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age. Two distinct building phases have been identified, the second followed destruction of the site by a fire.
From Tortolì head to Villagrande Strisaili first along SS 198 then on SP 27 to the centre of the village. Leave the village along SS 389. At about 7 km, just after the 'Bacu Alleri' bridge, take a dirt track leading to the archaeological site, about 400 m further on.
