Sanctuary of Santa Vittoria

On a basalt plateau, on the border between the territories of Sarcidano and Trexenta, in the central-southern part of Sardinia, there is one of the most important and long-lived archaeological areas on the Island, ranging from a Nuragic sanctuary to a Byzantine church.

Protected by a precipice to the south and a rocky wall to the north, the sanctuary of Santa Vittoria stretches for three hectares, among various relics from the past, in the Giara di Serri. It is an evocative place where you will observe the evolution of the Nuragic civilization in the Bronze Age and until the beginning of the Iron Age, from the corridor nuraghe (1500 BC), followed by the ‘classic’ nuraghe (14th to 12th centuries BC), until the area became (11th-9th centuries BC) the symbol of cultural religiosity and a cultural and commercial crossroads of all the Sardinian peoples and not only: Etruscan, Phoenicial and Cypriot objects, found in the excavations, are confirmation of exchanges that took place with distant peoples.
