Su Niu De Su Pilloni


Su Niu de su Pilloni is a fortified pre-nuragic area, built around the 3rd millennium b.C. to protect a village. It is 128 meters above sea level, defended by the mountains behind it, and from its top you can admire the Campidano plain, the river Cixerri and the pond as far as the sea. The village was originally protected by four boundary walls made of local stones and by a tower-hut, whose only remaining part today is its sub-circular base. They represent, together with the cliff, the last defense against assaults. The importance of the site is confirmed by other huts, dozens of menhirs, ceramics, obsidian and the eight well-known bronze statuettes from Uta.
