The archaeological site of Santa Cristina is located on the basalt plateau of Abbasanta. The area takes its name from the small country church of Santa Cristina, built some time in the 1200s, around which stands a cluster of cumbessias, small houses originally built to shelter pilgrims. The area, in use from the nuraghic period, is divided into two sectors: the first includes the well temple (consisting of an atrium, a stairway leading downwards and an underground tholos-roofed chamber which housed the spring), the “meeting hut” paved with cobbles and complete with a circular bench, and a series of other small square and round-plan buildings, probably lodgings for the priests of the cult and the pilgrims. We'll see see the Giants of Monti Prama on show at the Civic Museum of Cabras, the only stone statues which the ancient Nuraghic world has handed down to us, together with models of nuraghi and betyls found next to them.
