A magical and exceptional monument, giving the Neolithic Sardinian people the distinction of being a 'beacon' among Mediterranean civilisations. The tomb of painted architecture is the most famous of the four domus de Janas in the necropolis of Mount Siseri, in the area of Putifigari, a small town on the border between Nurra and Logudoro turritano. It is known as s'Incantu, the enchantment: no other name could be more apt for a five-thousand-year-old wonder, the most spectacular of the 215 sculpted or painted domus (out of a total of 3,500) discovered on the island! Inside, Neolithic art reaches its zenith with architectural complexity and harmony, richness and variety of decorations and colours, a refinement linked to the pre-Nuragic peoples' regard for the dead. S'Incantu, unearthed in 1989, can be dated to between the Recent Neolithic and the Chalcolithic (3200-2600 BC) and was reused until Roman times. This is Tomb I of the burial ground excavated in the form of an amphitheatre in an outcrop of pink tuff on the Siseri slope, at an altitude of 850 metres. A few dozen metres away you will see Tombs II and III, degraded and flooded due to the partial collapse of the ceilings. In the badde de Janas (valley of the fairies), on the opposite side of the mountain, 700 metres from the other three, stands the fourth underground tomb, which is also damaged.
