Li Lolghi (Tomba di Giganti) — Fieldnotes

I visited this in march 2003 and was fortunate not to have to pay any entrance fee or parking for the site. What was dissapointing though, was the litter scatterred all over the car park and around the monument.
A big dissapointment too was that someone had taken a dump in the chamber itself. This is the first time I've ever encountered this anywhere and hope its not a regular occurrence.
Obviously in the out of season times the place had the look as if no-one looked after it, but dont let that stop you going.
Still, apart from a few human offerings, the site is set in a wonderfull area, great view and very prominent. Although obviously repaired, the main Fascia stone is still a magnificently carved example. I wondered wether that maybe the seperate panels were painted originally. Who knows, but a nice though.

Li Mizzani (Tomba di Giganti) — Fieldnotes

I visited this in 2003. What fun it was looking for and driving up the dirt track to this great monument, set in one of the most picturesque parts of the Island.

Not huge compared to some others, but its setting more than make up for this. Well restored and cared for site, others on the island I found less so looked after.

Dont overlook it if your in the area.

Coddu Vecchju (Tomba di Giganti) — Fieldnotes

I visited this in march 2003, arriving after dark initially, then returned next day to really see its splendour.
I found it quite a peacefull location, great setting and loads of parking with no fees to pay at that time of year.
I found it to be in very good condition and feel it does give you a sense of what it might look like complete.
With a few Nuraghi towers nearby you could also explore on foot. Combine this with lots of other antiquarian sites in the area a great part of the island to visit.

Li Mizzani (Tomba di Giganti) — Fieldnotes

Mystery solved!

Having located its neighbour, it would have been rude to pass only a few km from Li Mizzani and we were feeling still in need of a good tomba having spent most of the week exploring domus je janas (groups of rock cut tombs).

The site had been so busy on our previous visit, we weren't surprised to see a few cars parked along the fence. We wandered in, to find just 4 people there, and in a combination of Italian, German and English, struck up conversation, and were fed delicious local cheese for our efforts. Cheers, Salvatore!

A couple of A4 laminates hung in the tree confirmed - the magnetic energy here is being used for natural healing!

I'm not sure about the claims that it can cure glaucoma and infertility, amongst other things, but this certainly is a beautiful place with a definite charm. I'll be back again.
