Full description
Very close to Cagliari, between orchards, vineyards and fertile hills, we find Pimentel a small town and agricultural center. Inside this town, in a beautiful landscape, in a flat area we find the Domus de Janas of Corongiu and the necropolis called De S'acqua Salida, dating back to 3200 BC. Still well preserved, they are a beautiful example of Pre-Nuragic architecture. In particular, the small but very important Domus of Corongiu still has spiral-shaped engravings that would represent the goddess of the eyes who protected the dead. But many other interpretations and interesting discoveries preserve the Domus de Janas of Pimentel that you can discover with our fascinating tour.
