Complesso Nuragico di Genna Maria

Archaeological Site in Villanovaforru & Nuraghe Genna Maria

This nuraghic complex, signposted as the Parco Archeologico, is set on a panoramic wooded hilltop about 1km out of the village on the road to Collinas. One of the most important nuraghi in Sardinia, it consists of a central tower, around which was raised a three-cornered bastion. Much later an encircling wall was built to protect an Iron Age village, of which little has survived.
