Despite our Lonely Planet Sardina guide stating that a English speaker guide was available, there wasn't one, so left to look around by ourselves. Amazing place but no real signage or explanations which meant we very nearly missed the chance to climb the main tower as the entrance looked insignificant. One of the best sites we have looked around on this holiday. The engineering shown to build is on a par with the pyramids, and is completely amazing when you look at what they have done, just wish more of an explanation had been provided on how it was built
It is a bit expensive because there is not much to see but still an impressive place and the atmosphere is nice inside the building, we liked it and it was not too touristy even though we were there in August.
