Easy to find site, just off the main road out from Olbia and well signposted. Shares a car park with Castillo de Pedres. We climbed back down the trail from Pedres Castle and then followed the path past the car park to Su Mont'e s'Abe, a megalithic barrow tomb in an extremely good state of repair. This was in a grove of trees which gave welcome shade and consists of a large corridor with huge stone walls and roof and then more stones arcing out from either side at the front, like a Zulu impi or bulls horns. The site was built around 2000BC and was in use until the start of the Nuraghe period.

Although it was a damp cold day in early March and as touring Sardinia we had yet to see a Nuraghe, we thought we would go to look at one before we crossed to Corsica. It was well worth it. First we stopped at Tomba dei Giganti 'Coddu Ecchju' , which we found easily, to get a ticket where we paid 6 euro for the combined ticket to both the Tomb and the Nuraghe. I believe you can also visit other Nuraghe in the area with a combined ticket price. The guide Mauro was very enthusiastic, interesting and seemed proud of his Sardinian heritage. We started with a talk in the ticket office where Mauro's passion came to the fore. We certainly learnt a few things about the island and its inhabitants. Then came the short walk to the Tomb which is not huge, there is a small opening in the middle where gifts of oils, food and precious things were put. It is not a doorway into the tomb (and should not really be entered) as the bodies were lowered via the long stones on top. It was extremely interesting listening to Mauro tell of its history and the history of Sardinia itself. A remarkable chap with a passion but unfortunately the archeologists have no money left to carry on exploring the surroundings where they know so much lies waiting to be discovered below.

We then drove a little further along the track to meet Donatella, another enthusiastic and interesting guide, who took us around the Nuraghe and the village ruins around it. There are some facinating stories to hear, I won't mention them now as it would spoil things for you, but the most amazing thing for us was the fact that this site has been buried, hidden from everyone until the beginnings of a dig in the 40's for 3,000 years! No other civiliation like the Romans (it's usually them) have built on top of it or extended it. Even better, there was a spiral staircase inside the Nuraghe that had only been uncovered last summer and we were some of the first people to see it in those 3,000 years. I find that incredible. For me standing inside that Nuraghe, our very first and nothing truly spectacular, thinking how on earth they built these simply but amazing structures, was quite a humbling experience.

Following the flood in 2013, the small bridge near the airport giving you access from Oblia is still unusable by motor vehicle. However, all the signage neglects to mention that and you will find yourself going round in circles. You will need to get on the Via Roma SS127 Sothbound, ignore the signs and instead carry straight on along the via Venafiorita. There is a new section of road not yet shown on google that lets you turn right on the main road towards Sassari. At the very next junction get off and head South and get off at the junction for Loiri. Do not turn right to Loiri, but left. You will see a sign saying road impassable which will confirm you are on the right road as the tombs are just before the broken bridge which stopped you getting here the direct way. From this road you can also visit the roman ruin right by the bridge and the castello di pedres right by the tombs.

Make sure you either go on a guided tour of get good directions because after walking around for an hour we still missed it. Our directions were flawed and we were sent off the wrong way. Too exhausted to carry on we decided we would leave it for another time when we visit Sardinia.

Amazing site, not to be missed. Very old and with open access just on the right, as one approaches it. It has no entrance info or person, just an abandoned sign in several languages.

Beware of Google's misleading directions heading out of the site, because the road became unpaved with deep ruts, and ended in a field. Fortunately my Italian came through, as I saw a farm property and a group of men in their yard. They told me that the directions have led many people to this dead-end, and one needs to turn back and drive the route one took to return.

We also lost our GPS a few times.

Being the longest Tomba on the island, with impressive views on both the vinyards and the nearby castle and also with an explanationsign to get a better understandig of burial rites in the early bronze age, the development of the tomba, , the difference in appearence in the first stage and the second stage of use and also the difference with how it looks nowadays, it kinda gets you thinking how small we are in the grand scheme of things...

Worth a visit as part of a combination with the "La Prisgiona" at the top of the hill (separate review). You can walk between the two, but it's a long walk!

A nice guided tour was provided which explained the history and the discovery of the place. Not a very long visit, hence why it makes sense to combine with the other site.

It's easy to appreciate what these people achieved in their lifetimes. I thought it had an energy and really enjoyed the visit. There were not many people at all and so we just walked and walked in fact almost to the top.... The view were stunning. Am really glad we took the time to visit. Also the drive there and back was really lovely from Porto Cervo and the sea views were stupendous! .....Made me want to jump right in. 😄
