To get there you leave Nuoro and turn towards Dorgali on the S129. You then turn on to the S131 and at the 19km sign there is a bit of a carpark on the right with a coloured easily visible sign. You just open the gate and walk 7-10mins to come across this ossuary site which is interesting given the... More

Look out for the sign - park along the roadside. Follow the path it is a little further than you think but well worth the walk.

We had read about these “Giants’” tombs that appear around Sardinia, but it isn’t until you actually visit one that you start to understand why people took some time to realise what they were. This particular one near Dorgali is easy to miss - the clues being a couple of signs, a small rough parking area and a large ironwork... More

The place looks abandoned untill you pass true the gate. The gate was open and there was no entrance fee, only the sign asking you to close the gate when you leave due to wild animals. The prehistorical cementary is located on the hill, in the middle of blooming meadows. The open view to the mountains and to the sea... More

Never seen anything like this before. Especially enjoyed the setting, walking a short distance through a natural area and suddenly seeing this odd stone construct, stage-like, before you. Almost an alien feeling, quite photogenic.

Although to get to the tomb is a bit of walk (10 minutes) it was worth the time and effort. The walk is through fields and not at all strenuous. It is not a large site but quite amazing when you realize that people had to move these huge stones into place to provide a gravesite in the middle of... More

the giant grave s´ena e thomas is located not far away from dorgali in direction to nuoro, not well sign posted, but directly beside the mainroad, it is hidden in the lush maccia and the entrance is behind a small parking place. the metal-door should be closed everytime, because a lot of goats use the terrain also. the giant grave...

You will need a guide book to make sense of this as there is not much by way of explanation on site. Never the less if you find yourself in this area it is worth a quick look. The car park is very rough with large stones - so don't try to park your Ferrari here!

This is a free site next to the road, park your car near the sign, open & close the gate and follow the path for a few minutes to find a fairly complete 'giants grave'. A nice way to strech your legs and get in touch with Sardegna's rich past.

Easily accessible from the Dorgali road is this tomba dei Giganti. It is well preserved and there are other archaeological sites nearby, so if you are into ancient sites, this is a good one. Free to enter which is a benefit and a danger as described above. There are many thousands of ancient wonders in Sardinia often set in stunning... More
