The Nuragic civilization developed both inland and on the coast. The archaeological legacies of Dorgali bear witness to how considerably frequented and culturally lively the Sardinian coasts were during the Protohistoric period. The symbol is the complex of the nuraghe Mannu, perched on the top of a promontory, 200 metres above the sea, with its dizzying basalt rock face that descends to the codula of Fuili, a short distance from the Grotte del Bue Marino (Sea Oxen Grottoes) and Cala Luna. The dominant and scenic location was strategic and the view extends across the entire Gulf of Orosei. A path leads up from Cala Fuili close to the archaeological area. It may have been plotted by the Nuragic people in order to reach a nearby landing place. Arriving by car, the diversion leading to the Mannu is at the fourth kilometre along the road that leads to the village of Cala Gonone. From the junction, the nuraghe is two kilometres away and the last 800 metres need to be covered on foot.
