Chilivani - Nurhage

Chilivani - Nurhage
About 1500 BC villages and settlements were built around massive tower fortresses called "Nuraghi" (or "Nuraghes"). Boundaries were guarded by smaller lookout Nuraghes erected on strategic hills commanding a view of other territories.

Today, some 7,000 Nuraghi dot the Sardinian landscape, some scholars have even counted more than 10.000. For me, the giant number in an enigma, having in mind the density of population at that time - and Sardinia´s land area of about 24.000 km².
