Located on a 200 m high hill, the Pani Loriga archaeological site includes the remains of a settlement dating back to Phoenician-Punic times, together with fortifications and an imposing nuraghe. Founded in the 7th century BC by Phoenician colonists, it owed its long existence to its easy-to-defend geographical position. Archaeological digs have brought to light various layers showing the site was continuously inhabited from the 4th millennium BC to the 8th century AD, spanning the pre-nuraghic, nuraghic, Phoenician-Punic, Roman and Byzantine times.
