Founded just over 200 years ago, Santa Teresa Gallura actually boasts thousands of years of history. You have to go back over 3,000 years, to be precise, when Nuragic settlers arrived along Gallura’s coast and hinterland. The site of Lu Brandali, which can be dated between the 14th and 10th centuries BC, features a nuraghe (most of which has collapsed) and two towers (one of which can be visited), a Giants’ Tomb (where a number of bodies, interred with grave goods, were discovered in the early 1980s) and a village of huts that, thanks to the efforts of the local council and the work of archaeologists and volunteers, rendered up a number of artefacts. The utensils and objects typical of daily life there are particularly interesting, as are the remains of meals and ceramics that have helped researchers improve their understanding of how the village’s inhabitants lived and what they ate.
You can also choose to visit the exhibition on nuragic archaeology entitled ‘LU BRANDALI: READ, TOUCH AND HEAR’, and travel backwards in time thanks to both traditional and innovative educational tools such as dedicated apps, 3-D headsets and prints and audio-tactile presentations.
From Santa Teresa, follow the signs to Capo Testa, then after 1.5 km turn left, crossing the main entrance to the Lu Brandali area. Leave your car in the on-site car park and follow the signs on foot.
