Nuraghes

Visible to anyone in the world

Nuraghes are prehistoric structures characteristic of Sardinia, built between 1900 and 700 BCE according to Wikipedia. About 7000 are known but there would once have been more. They come in a variety of forms and their function is not clear; they might have had various purposes and perhaps different nuraghes were used for different things.

This example is called Losa and is a whole complex of buildings, including later strucures from the Phoenician, Roman and medieval era.
