The sealed wonders of Sardinia

Sardinia is an Italian island known mainly among archaeologists for its nuraghes - ancient towers somewhat reminiscent of Scottish brochs, but far more numerous and quite elaborate. On the island you will find a great number of other ancient wonders: from the so-called 'giants tombs' to the rock-cut tombs locally known as 'domus de janas' (houses of the fairies).[...]
Amazing pictures of the tomb can be found here: Bonorva Chequered Tomb (Sa Pala Larga Tomb no.7)
