ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Su Nuraxi di BaruminiThe excursion begins at Piazza Yenne round about at 9:00, Cagliari, no hotel pick ups. You will travel in a comfortable minivan with air condition to Barumini complex. About 3,500 years ago, the ancient people built a Nuraghe and a small village made of huts on the hill of Barumini. The Nuraghi are outstanding monuments halfway between the defensive and civil building, and they survived to this day testifying an ancient culture linked to the megalithic civilizations of the Mediterranean area. The Nuragic civilization played an important role in the spread of Mycenaean culture and of the Phoenician culture later, although some of its features remain a mystery, almost unintelligible, perhaps because they are foreign to the classical Greek culture. The most famous piece of the complex is “Su Nuraxi”: the most complete and best preserved example of Nuraghe and since 1997, it registered to the Unesco World Heritage List. You will visit also Casa Zapata Museum  which is open from 2006. The museum is organized into three sections: archaeological, historical and ethnographic. The peculiarity of “Casa Zapata” is the presence of a seventeenth-century building that lies on the ruins of a Nuragic complex called “Nuraxi e Cresia “ As a result of the excavation works at “Su Nuraxi”, carried out in the 50s by professor Giovanni Lilliu, there was an increasing need and desire to create a place that could keep all the discovered materials, and “Casa Zapata” has a role in keeping, promoting and enhancing these assets.Admission tickets and guide are included in the excursion price. Meals are not included.Duration: 2 hours
