We explore the pristine volcanic plateau of the Giara to meet the reknowned wild horses. We also discover Su nuraxi, the important prehistoric monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Giara is a vast uncontaminated basalt plateau where thousands of wild horses have lived for thousands of years, though it remains a mystery how they came to inhabit this natural landscape of outstanding beauty.

Below them, on the plain, we spot in the distance the monumental nuraghe of Barumini. This typical Sardinian prehistoric structure was built with stones carved out from the Giara itself. The nuraghe is made up of a system of towers, part of an old genial idea the memory of which has sadly been lost.Today we can witness an amazing prehistoric monument built by people who knew how to govern with balance over the external forces.
