Description
Red lichens cover the stones of this nuraghe and gives it its characteristic red color. Nuraghe Arrubiu means Red Nuraghe in the local language. This Red Giant is a majestic nuraghe complex, the only example of a pentalobe nuraghe in Sardinia (5 lateral towers).
It consists of a central tower and 5 lateral towers joined to each other by a wall. The outer walls include 7 towers and enclose 3 courtyards. The oldest parts of this nuraghe date from the XIV century BC. During the Roman period this nuraghe was used when 2 wine producing areas were built.
Around the nuraghe there is a hut village.
This site can be reached by coach.
A guide of the site is available.
