Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Step into the religious spaces of a Nuragic civilization at S'Arcu es Forros. Here you'll find rectangular temples with a central holy room believed to have housed a fire pit intended to host a holy fire. Here it was believed that the deities potentially having a connection to water or astronomical entities (such as the moon and sun) were worshipped. Archeologists have dated this complex to between the Late Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age (1200–800 BCE). The village was destroyed by a fire, but excavations in the 1980s recovered the complex. You can visit the ancient civilization with the help of a knowledgeable guide.

  • Very Interesting. Kind guide. Poor signaled and advertised
  • Visita del 14 settembre. Molto interessante da ogni punto di vista, in particolare per la sua collocazione geografica e la presenza, non comune, dei templi a megaron e delle fornaci. Un grazie particolare alla signora Fabiana Pistis, competente, appassionata al suo lavoro,paziente e cordiale.Non parliamo poi dei suoi straordinari occhi verdi. Grazie anche al signor Luca.
