The Archeo-tour to Seruci and Sirai is a way to go deeper in the ancient history of South Western Sardinia, focused on the old populations that lived in Sardinia 3 thousands of years ago in locations that almost didn’t change in the meanwhile.
The first stop of the Archeo-tour is Nuraghe Seruci, one of the largest and most important nuragic complexes in Sardinia, dating back to 3500 years ago (16th century BC). The majesty of the central nuraghe is striking, with a diameter of 60 meters and a current height of 14 meters.
The day continues with a stop in the beautiful beach of Porto Paglia and goes on with the visit of the Phoenician-Punic archaeological area of Monte Sirai, a village that represents an extraordinary example of the ancient phoenician-punic settlements (VIII b. C.).

The first stop of the Archeo-tour is Nuraghe Seruci, one of the largest and most important nuragic complexes in Sardinia. The landscape is breathtaking, on a hill from which you can see the sea of the Iglesiente coast and the rolling hills of the Gonnesa area, shaped by the strong mistral wind.
Our guided tour will tell all the peculiarities of this wonderful archaeological complex, taking the cue to talk more generally about the extraordinary Nuragic people, their uses and their uniqueness.
After the visit to Seruci, we will make a refreshment stop at the beautiful beach of Porto Paglia, a few kilometers from the nuragic complex. Here of great interest are the ruins of the ancient tonnara and the sandstone rocks in the background of the beautiful beach.
The day continues towards the Phoenician-Punic archaeological area of Monte Sirai. Here we will visit the temple dedicated to the Goddess Astarte, built on the still visible remains of an ancient nuraghe and the rest of the acropolis. The village represents an extraordinary example of the ancient Phoenician-Punic settlements.
