==Nuraghe Tintirriolu, Bortigali==
This nuraghe is a complex nuraghe consisting of a main tower surrounded by four smaller towers. What emerges now from the vegetation and dirt covering it is only the second chamber of the main tower with its window. The first chamber is completely buried along with most of the bastion.

==Nuraghe Lucche, Illorai==
The Nuraghe Luche is a classic single-tower, partially collapsed. The inside of the structure is inaccessible because it is blocked by collapses. To the south-east of the nuraghe there are traces of a nuragic village

==Nuraghe Aiga, Abbasanta==


It is a complex with a possible leaning village (the vegetation that surrounds it does not allow an easy reading in plan). However, the keep stands out with two intact floors and with a third now destroyed.
The conservation level of the aforementioned is optimal, in fact it presents only some cracks in the ashlars of the corridor and in the rooms.
Access to this monument is possible, in the current state of excavation, only from the second level window that leads, through an access corridor, to a room with three deep niches. In the aforementioned corridor, on the right-hand perimeter wall, the hourly staircase leads to the floor below, covering the entire 360 ° wall perimeter and to the left of the window the hourly staircase that rises for another 180 ° and reaches the third floor, now collapsed , and continued up to the terrace on the top of the third level.
The first level, which at the moment presents the entrance from the underground outside and two meters of encumbrance material in the room has three niches high around 4 m, seeds turned to tholos.
Above the entrance corridor a window was built though which one can access the left niche of the second level.

" has three niches high around 4 m, seeds turned to tholos." I meant to write, half covered by a tholos


Recently a previously unknown outer wall has been discovered at Su Nuraxi. This wall which protected the settlement seems to belong to one of the earliest phases of the settlement, before the Final Bronze Age phase, and probably belonging to the Recent or Middle Bronze age, so contemporary to the construction of the Bastion. This outer wall is quite similar to that of Genna Marria, which was partially dismantled in the Final Bronze Age:

See the clear similarity with the outer wall of Gennamaria:
