These megalithic stones, built around 3300-2500 BC, were inserted into the ground. Some are completely smooth and clearly represent a phallic symbol, while others allegedly bear the sign of female fertility – breasts – representing the Mother Goddess.
There are several still well-preserved watchtowers, built during Spanish domination from the fourteenth century and used to defend the area from the landing of Moorish ships (bitter enemies of the local inhabitants), for example, the towers of the 10 Cavalli, Salinas, and Monti Ferru. In addition there are thirteen churches in the municipality of Muravera alone, of which five may be visited, reflecting an intense religious faith present since antiquity, as well as numerous Nuraghe in Sardinia built between 1800 BC and the sixth century BC, Domus de Janas, or, funerary structures built between the fourth and third millennium BC by peaceful peoples arriving in Sardinia by sea, probably dedicated to worship of the sun, bull and moon.
