Behind Mount Corrasi, in the Oliena’s area (NU) is one of the most mysterious example of ancient human settlement. Visiting Tiscali is an adventure that will make you go back to the nuraghic civilization.
It’s a journey that doesn’t give you answers, on the contrary, it increases the enigmas about the civilizations that occupied Sardinia and left thousand of unaccountable and fantastic signs. Furthermore, Tiscali archaeological findings are different from all the other mysterious ones left by the nuraghi people. The Nuraghes used to be clearly visible, rarely hidden; Tiscali, on the contrary, is a secret fort which can be seen only when in front of its entrance.
Tiscali, a 518  metres high mountain, rises at the bottom of the enchanting and wild Lanaitto valley. Hidden at the top of the mountain  is a huge round open-air cave. Once inside you will enjoy the wonderful view of a beautiful masonry huts village. The nuraghes agglomeration was so wide that it was divided into two different districts.
This village was discovered by people who came after the nuraghic civilization and from that moment on it was considered an ideal place where to live. People lived here until the Roman and the High Middle Age, even though it was “rediscovered” by accident only at the end of the 20th century. Despite the continuous pillages, Tiscali remains one of the most fascinating and charming ancient settlement of all the Mediterranean area.
