Its walls have seen a succession of Nuragic, Punic, Roman and early medieval peoples, making it one of the few Sardinian Bronze Age sites that ‘lived’ uninterruptedly for more than fifteen centuries. The nuraghe Santu Miali is located in the territory of Pompu, a small agricultural village in the upper Marmilla area, at the foot of Mount Arci, and has undergone numerous excavation campaigns over the years, which have shed light on its extraordinary longevity. The building falls into the category of Nuragic fortresses with a complex structure, consisting of a central tower and a quatrefoiled bastion with an inner courtyard. Its construction dates back to between the 14th and 12th centuries BC. The construction material used was sandstone, giving Santu Miali its distinctive yellow colour.
