This is Coddu Vecchju, one of the giants’ tombs found scattered around Sardinia. They’re built way back in the Bronze Age by the Nuragic civilization. The Nuragic are named after their circular forts called Nuraghe.
The Italian island of Sardinia is one of the playgrounds of the rich and famous. That is if you go to the beaches, in summer. If you go in the winter and explore the interior you see a completely different picture. Sardinia’s interior is rural, rugged and mountainous. You’ll see more sheep than people, and more interestingly shaped rocks than sheep. The harsh landscape is dotted occasionally by tightly packed villages.
I think I’ve just convinced myself I need to make a return trip. I was there during university and went on this trip specifically to get some practice in with what was, at that time, my brand new Canon Rebel.
