Li Lolghi

Tomba di Giganti


Li Lolghi has the most terrific reveal. Walking up a little track past the biglietteria (ticket booth) you turn a corner and suddenly it's there like an old friend standing on a hilltop waving 'ciao!'

Because it stands at the top of a little rise it looks even bigger - and it's pretty damned big to begin with. Li Lolghi's stele is more tapered in shape than arched and the chunk missing at the top simply adds character and charm.

Indeed it's so spectacular that I actually shivered in delight when I pressed myself against its pink lichen covered warm flatness.The slabs that form the monument's curved arms are equally flat and reminded me of the squary flatness of some of the stones at Callanish.
