The domus de janas

Ingresso di una domus de janas

 

As most of them have been carved in rocky mountain ridges the domus de janas are to be found together in small burial grounds.

The mono-cellular and bi-cellular plants with no architectonical particulars of great interest are the most widespread: Puntas Biancas, Badde Usai, Santu Pedru e Concas, Su Pasciale, S'Alghentalzu and Monte Mundigu.

There is no lack either of examples of burial chambers with more rooms: Sa Punta Ruggia, Nenaldu Multinu e Baddenare, with columns, pilasters, bull head relieves and horn-shaped motifs: Baddenare, Sa Punta Ruggia, Nenaldu Multinu.
