Informationen zu Serra Orrios

The site was inhabited in the Middle Bronze period (16th – 15th century BC) until the Iron Age (9th century BC). It has about 50 huts plus as many pens for animals or the like. Above all, it has two small temples in Megaron with a fence, plus a megalithic fence that surrounds part of the site and two megalithic tombs not far away. The rooms, all in basaltic stone, are well preserved and provide a precise picture of the village's structure and its domestic and religious life. The huts are almost all circular in shape, and still retain traces of the basement fireplace as well as other details of the common life of the time – i.e. the niches cut out of the wall to keep everyday objects. The megaron temples are in antis, amd have a fence dividing the sacred area and a seat counter in the vestibular area. On the site there is also a large circular hut with a seat counter on the entire perimeter of the wall, which is similar to many structures to be found in shrines from the Recent Bronze and Iron Ages in Sardinia. They are known by the name 'Capanne delle riunioni' (meeting huts).

The Village of Serra Orrios is situated in the area of Dorgali, on the vast basaltic plateau that surrounds the left side of the Cedrine valley - today partly an artificial lake.
