Nuraghe of Palmavera
You can find a lot of "nuraghi" scattered all around Sardinia: they are ancient cone-shaped buildings, used as a defence, made of big squared stones.
The so-called Nuraghe of Palmavera is different from the traditional nuraghi because it is the result of consecutive building stages from the year 1000 to the eighth century.
The Nuraghe of Palmavera is only 11 Km far from Alghero and lies near Spiaggia delle Bombarde (Bombarde Beach). It is formed by two towers: the central tower is more ancient and dates back to the fifteenth century B.C.; the outer tower, which is equipped with a courtyard and defensive walls, dates back to the eighth/seventh century B.C. . Around the nuraghe you can see round and square huts which formed the village in the past.
