From Cagliari: Day Trip to Domus de Janas Fairy Houses

1. From Cagliari: Day Trip to Domus de Janas Fairy Houses

Take a guided day trip from Cagliari to the Necropolis of De S'acqua Salida to see Domus de Janas or Fairy Houses, prehistoric tombs carved into the rock. Uncover an ancient funerary cult dating back to pre-Nuragic times. Meet your guide and head to the small town and agricultural center of Pimentel, nestled between orchards and vineyards. Here lies the Domus de Janas of Corongiu and the necropolis called De S'acqua Salida dating back to 3200 BC. Marvel at the Domus of Corongiu and its spiral-shaped engravings that represent the goddess of the eyes who protected the dead. But there are many other interpretations to the engravings which your guide will share with you. Admire the craftsmanship of the prehistoric people who were able to dig and shape rocks with limited tools to create underground tombs in which they buried their dead.

What people are saying about Pimentel, Sardinia

Claudia is an outstanding guide and we had a wonderful afternoon in this extraordinary place. We were the only people there. Claudia shared her huge knowledge of time, place and people so engagingly, so clearly and enthusiastically, that we really were taken back around 5,000 years (an almost ungraspable length of time). In this magical setting, we felt really close to the people of then and so very respectful of the ways they honoured their dead. And it wasn't all deep history, we also had a lot of fun and laughter. Highly, highly recommend.
