According to the ‘father’ of Sardinian archaeologists, Giovanni Lilliu (1914-2012), this was the realm of a small capital, just like Su Nuraxi in Barumini and Nuraghe Losa in Abbasanta. Before him, at the beginning of the 19th century, other Sardinian scholars – Angius and Spano – bore witness to the fortress, exalting its architecture. The ancient majesty of the Nuraghe sa Domu Beccia (‘old house’ in the Campidanese dialect), a unicum on the island due to the unique articulation of towers and fortified walls, was then irremediably altered in the years 1822-25. With the boulders of the monument, 15 kilometres of paved road leading to Oristano were built. The charm of viewing such, however, was not affected: 800 metres from the town of Uras, at the south-western base of the Monte Arci park – a territory inhabited since the final Neolithic period also due to the presence of deposits of obsidian - the ruins of an elaborate and imposing complex that ‘came to life’ between middle and final Bronze (XV-XI century BC) period can be admired.
