Tiscali is a nuraghic village hidden in the interior of a cave at the crest of the same-named mountain. It is indeed a real mystery that archaeologists, scholars and science haven’t unravelled yet.

This village of the last period of the Nuraghic Age (4th century B.C.) is situated in the heart of the Supramonte.

The visitor can admire a sight of breathtaking beauty: the remains of the settlement are situated inside a huge limestone cavern which is the result of the subsiding of the earth’s crust. At the centre of the doline (a hollow in the karst), a huge rock towers. It is surrounded by a small holm oak wood.

At one side of the rock, there is a big cave which guaranteed access and ventilation for the settlement.

The village, which has been erected under the walls of the dolina, lies hidden from view and the visitor can only spot it when he reaches the interior of the cave. The microclimate, the atmosphere of the cave and the colours of the limestone make this place unique and unforgettable.
