Santuario Nuragico di Santa Vittoria
The nuraghic complex of Santa Vittoria, another of the most important archaeological sites in Sardinia, is found on the plateau of the Giara of Serri, at just a few kilometers from the town.
The site is formed by two principle zones, the common and the sacred.
In the first area contained by an elliptical enclosure, we find the Sacred Well on a circular plan with a conical structure made out of basalt stones perfectly cut square. Access to the sacred well is reached thanks to thirteen graded steps, accessible through a rectangular threshold with an altar at the center and lateral benches. In this zone we find as well the Tempio Ipetrale and the Priestess’s Hut. Nearby we can also find the church of S. Vittoria and the Torre con Feritoie, a nuraghe in itself.
The common area is instead characterized by the presence of the Circle of Celebrations, an elliptical form with spaces where the daily and economic life took part. There is also an area where the rooms, the Meeting Circle and the Complesso di Doppio Betilo.
Removed from the rest of the complex and enclosed by a thick wall is the Home of the Chief, a great circular hut.
