In the afternoon we will continue with a visit to the Archaeological Complex of “Su Nuraxi” in Barumini, discovered and brought to light during the ’50s, thanks to the archaeologist Giovanni Lilliu. The area consists of an impressive complex nuraghe, built in different phases starting from the fifteenth century BC, and a large village of huts, which developed all around during the following centuries. A unique place and for this reason, since 1997, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Visit of the new “Giovanni Lilliu” Cultural Communication and Promotion Center of Cultural Heritage, which today offers numerous and interesting exhibitions and pursues the objective of promoting Barumini as a meeting point and enhancement of the Province of Medio Campidano.
We will continue to discover another wonder: “Su Nuraxi ‘e Cresia”, a complex nuraghe that came to light in the 90s during the restoration of Casa Zapata, an ancient noble residence of the Sardinian-Aragonese barons, built from the half of 1500, above the ancient nuragic building. Today the Spanish residence, which also includes a beautiful garden overlooking the parish church, is home to the so-called Casa Zapata Museum Center, organized in three sections: Archaeological, Historical, Archival and Ethnographic.
