Throughout the island there are about 6.500 structures of this type . therefore, to meet more or less well-preserved ruins of a Nuraghe on the island is very simple.

The towers are significantly different from each other in size and scope, some of them have very complex structure and some are very tight to each other, forming a small settlement.
