This huge rounded stone marks the entrance to a tomba di giganti (giants’ tomb) at Arzachena. About 500 of these 60-foot-long communal burial chambers, built in the second millennium B.C., have been uncovered in Sardinia. In earlier periods, Sardinians tended to bury their dead in individual subterranean tombs, sometimes decorated with architectural details reminiscent of domestic structures.
