Nuraghe Losa : elegant and powerful!
The Nuraghe Losa is one of the better conserved and more easily accessible nuraghic complexes in Sardinia. It’s located in the province of Oristano on the SS131 that connects Cagliari and Sassari. It’s one of the most compact and elegantly-structured nuraghe that I've ever seen and to get up close and feel dwarfed by the massive (and perfectly placed) stones is quite an experience.
Built of basalt, the Nuraghe Losa consists of a central tower and a protective wall with three outer towers, but it lacks the central courtyard found in more complex nuraghe. A giants’ tomb is also located nearby and the whole area is surrounded by a gigantic wall.
