Archaeology and wild nature

Sant’Antioco island

Sant’Antioco è un comune di circa 11 037 abitanti della provincia del Sud Sardegna, nel Sulcis-Iglesiente.
Sant’Antioco is a municipality of about 11.037 inhabitants in the south Sardinia province in the Sulcis-Iglesiente area. The municipality stands on the remains of the city of Sulki: small port, colorful houses are the soul of Sant’Antioco. The renowned town of the Sulcis archipelago is the main center of Sardinia, to which it is connected by an artificial isthmus, perhaps built by the Punic and completed by the Romans. Going with the certified tourist guide we will visit the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum, the Hypogeum Village and the Thophets, the children’s burial area in the Carthaginian era.

Villaperuccio : Montessu necropolis

In a natural amphitheater of extraordinary beauty, among the rocks as in a fairytale landscape, there are more than forty funeral hypogeous dating back six thousand years ago. Some domus de janas are extremely important for internal decorations such as the spiral tomb and that of the taurine protomes. Moreover in Villaperuccio area we will stop to visit the “Menhir Valley” consisting of 7 menhirs including one called “Luxia Arrabiosa” with its almost 6 meters height is among the largest in Sardinia and the Mediterranean area.

Porto Pino : Porto Pino Dunes

Not far from Villaperuccio, we will visit the wonderful Dunes of Porto Pino. The area is characterized by white sand dunes produced by the promontory rock erosion, by the sea and atmospheric agents. On the top of the dunes grows a dense patch of cuddly juniper. Together with the dunes of Piscinas (Arbus) they are the only desert sand areas in Europe.

Il Sulcis (Meurreddìa o Surcis in sardo) è un territorio della Sardegna che si estende nella porzione sudoccidentale dell'isola, parte integrante della regione storico-geografica del Sulcis-Iglesiente. Il Sulcis propriamente detto corrisponde al versante sudoccidentale dei Monti del Sulcis e alla piana sottostante fino alla costa sudoccidentale che si affaccia sul Canale di Sardegna, da capo Altano, o capo Giordano, fino al Golfo di Palmas e da qui continua verso il Capo Teulada. Fa parte del territorio sulcitano anche l'arcipelago del Sulcis, con le isole di San Pietro e di Sant'Antioco.Fonte Wikipedia
