Torralba
Torralba SardiniaThe area of Torralba has been densely inhabited since the Nuragic Age, as testified by the nuraghe of Santu Antine. The medieval village, which rises around the monastery and the church of Santa Maria, owned by the Regno Giudicale of Porto Torres. We suggest you visit the archaeological and ethnographic museum of Torralba, that houses the archaeological heritage of the land, that thanks to its importance, is called “Valle dei Nuraghi” (Nuraghe valley).
 
Torralba SardiniaThe nuraghe of Torralba is the most famous and imposing of this area. Its name comes from San Costantino, the Roman emperor that was the main supporter of the Christian conversion of the island. The nuraghe rises on a huge plain, where there are many other nuraghi. The “reggia nuragica” (nuragic royal palace) is in the centre of a triangular bastion, with three minor towers located on the corners. The central tower has a diameter of 15 metres and half, it was more than 20 metres high (nowadays it is 17 metres high), and is built by 28 lines of basaltic stones. Inside you can admire the symmetry and the functionality utilized to make the best use of the space. Around the big central rooms, that were used for meetings and protective places, there are the passages, lit by slits equally distant one from the other.
