|The Hut of the Reunions
(La Capanna Delle Riunion)
|La Capanna Delle Riunion (The Hut of the Reunions), especially stands out in the
surrounding village of the Nuraghe. It's substantial size, with a diameter of 12m
and certain characteristics, a bench all around the internal wall - suggests its use
as a meeting place. The hut, constructed around the 12th - 10th centuries BC, has a
bench running all around the wall, interrupted on the north side by a rectangular
cistern made of stone slabs; above this an arched niche, and next to it is a fine
decorated sandstone stool. In the middle of the hut a circular base of triangular
blocks supports a small pillar, shaped like a Nuragic tower, suggesting a cult of the
nuragic tower itself. Archaeological excavations revelled a considerable quantity of
pottery, amber beads and decorated bronze arm-rings.
Located within the complex of Palmavera Nuraghe.
