We explore the pristine volcanic plateau of the Giara to meet the reknowned wild horses. We also discover Su nuraxi, the important prehistoric monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Giara is a vast uncontaminated basalt plateau where thousands of wild horses have lived for thousands of years, though it remains a mystery how they came to inhabit this natural landscape of outstanding beauty. We approach them through the cork oak trees and the myrtle-scented shrubs, to see them while they drink calmly in the small ponds. Below them, on the plain, we spot in the distance the monumental nuraghe of Barumini. This typical Sardinian prehistoric structure was built with stones carved out from the Giara itself. The nuraghe is made up of a system of towers, part of an old genial idea the memory of which has sadly been lost.Today we can witness an amazing prehistoric monument built by people who knew how to govern with balance over the external forces.

The Arbus countryside is home to the only black sheep farm in Sardinia, and a visit here is a unique experience. The cheese made on site is delicious because the black sheep, besides being raised free range, graze on fragrant wild herbs that give their milk an exceptional flavour. As we taste the local cheese, we can also smell the sea in the air of the Costa Verde. It is here where a small desert of extraordinary beauty stretches over many kilometres of some of the highest sand dunes in Europe. The beach of Piscinas is also a magical place: the turquoise of the sea merges with the bright colours of the yellow sand. Going up an old road immersed in Mediterranean scrub, we arrive in the Montevecchio mining area. In the nineteenth century, the mining activity here reached very important levels, and the structures and houses that are preserved, after the mines closed in 1991, feature architectural elements of considerable value. This is why Montevecchio is a UNESCO monument.

The tour will start in Cagliari from the Harbor or from your hotel. After an easy 45-minute drive to Barumini, we will cross the Marmilla Region, trough fields of wheat and artichokes. Once in Barumini, you will discover one of the most beautiful prehistoric sites of the Mediterranean sea, the 3,800-year-old Fortress of Su Nuraxi, protected by UNESCO and representative of Sardinian Nuragic Culture. After this stop, leave for another adventure in the Giara plateau, where the little wild horses live.

The guided excursion to see the Nuraghe of Barumini and Giara’s mini horses starts from Cagliari, usually in the morning, and lasts for half a day.
Nuraghe of Barumini.
The guided tour of the archaeological site of Barumini will introduce you to the origins of the Sardinian culture. 'Su Nuraxi,' the Nuraghe of Barumini, is located just few steps from the village of Barumini and from the Park of Giara in the region of Marmilla. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1997 by UNESCO, the Nuraghe of Barumini is definitely one of the most famous and most important archaeological sites in Sardinia.
The importance of the archaeological 'Su Nuraxi,' discovered and brought to light in the 1950s during excavations conducted by the great archaeologist Giovanni Lilliu, is its complexity and its excellent condition. The immense Nuraghe of Barumini consists of megalithic stones of incomparable beauty and perfection. Barumini is a symbol of Nuragic civilization that contains the greatest secrets of Sardinia.
The monument, with one of the most extraordinary floor plans and architectural achievements ever produced by the Nuragic culture, is composed of four towers connected by straight curtains. To the East and South of the fort there is an agglomeration of 200 huts that were part of the village.
After visiting the Nuraghe of Barumini the excursion will continue to the Giara of Gesturi to admire its natural beauty and the famous wild horses of Giara di Gesturi.
Giara di Gesturi
Sardinia has a long tradition in riding, and it is one of the last regions in Europe where you can still find wild horses, like the famous 'Cavallini of Giara di Gesturi.'
The horses of the Giara, imported by the Phoenicians or coming from Greece brought by sailors, are today the only survivors of numerous groups that until the late Middle Ages lived in the wild on the island. In the vast plateau, the small horses (they are not ponies!) number about 500. They have found here an ideal habitat that allowed them to recover, at least partially, the genotype of the wild horse.
The small horses of Giara have a sprightly and indomitable character and although apparently peaceful, they have a sense of strength and resistance whenever they suspect humans are trying to threaten or deprive them of their freedom.
Their dimensions are small compared to those of traditional horses, although their graceful proportions are not those of a small pony. The average height is approximately 1.20 m. The mane and tail are thick. They live in small family groups consisting of a stable dominant male and 7 or 8 females with their foals, although it is not uncommon to find groups of 'bachelor' males, usually older horses of 15-20 years. Each group has a well-defined territory.

Your private tourist guide will pick you up at the scheduled time by his comfortable minivan. During the 45 minutes route to Barumini, it will be tell you about the main features of the island and the landscape we will see from the car's windows. Once arrived, we will visit the imposing nuraghe "Su Nuraxi" and its village: an Archaeological complex whose most ancient traces are date back to around the 1500 b.c. We will begin from the village, where you will see various types of housing structures, the round ones, with a central courtyard, that go back to the nuragic period, and the rectangular ones, that belong to the punic-roman period. Noteworthy are a central court house with a spa environment perhaps home to a domestic cult, and the big meeting hut. Then, we will enter the real nuraghe, that can be reached by an iron ladder which leads to a tiny entry, placed at 7 metres of height. There we will visit the central tower, called “mastio”, that originally measured 20 metres in height, and the 4 side towers. The whole of the 5 towers makes a housing complex that, for its grandeur, reminds us of a medieval castle. After the visit to su Nuraxi, you will be taken to the place where your excursion began. The tour can also be enriched by choosing one of the different available options.
