The archaeological area of Tharros
The archaeological area extends into the southern offshoot of the Sinis peninsula, in the territory of Cabras. The remains date back mainly to the Roman era. Among the most interesting structures you can see the baths, the foundations of the temple and a part of the town with houses and artisan shops.
Two necropolises and the tophet remain from the Phoenician era, the cemetery sanctuary where the urns containing the incinerated remains of babies and sacrificial animals were placed.
On the hill of Su Murru Mannu we find the oldest evidence of the area: the remains of the Nuragic village abandoned before the arrival of the Phoenicians. Remains of two nuraghi are also found on the promontory of San Marco and another is hypothesized at the base of the tower of San Giovanni.
