The history of Villasimius and its territory are inextricably linked to the sea. The stories of clashes and encounters between the different peoples who crossed paths in its waters, often exchanging goods, customs and knowledge, are told in the archaeological museum, located in the rooms of a 19th-century rural ‘courtyard’ house. A staircase with terracotta tiles, leading to the upper floor, and a wall made of ladiri (raw earth bricks) are what remains of the ancient manor house. The exhibition contains artefacts that date back to a period of time ranging from the Nuragic age to the Spanish domination in the Middle Ages. Many were recovered from the seabed, from wreckages and during underwater excavations. The museum is spread over two floors and four rooms, along an itinerary based on both a chronological and a thematic criterion
