Website Abbasanta, Nuraghe Losa (Italian)

The nuraghe Losa (in Sardinia, close to the village of Abbasanta) is a complex prehistoric building in the shape of a tholos tomb.[1] Its central structure has a triangular shape.[2]

On the west side, a turreted wall is linked to it. The whole built complex is surrounded by a wider wall, which encloses the settlement of the original village of huts and other additional buildings constructed in the late-Punic, imperial Roman, late Roman and high Middle Ages periods.
