Coddu Vecchiu is Giants' grave, one of a few hundred scattered throughout Sardinia, and the most impressive. Although the name of the "Giants' grave" place scares many visitors, but in fact to the graves Codd Vecchio is irrelevant. According to legend, the giants were buried here, but scientists are still struggling with the question, which actually served as the stone structures.

Now the Giants' grave has niche in nearly 15 meters long, and the cells around it. Inside, there is an underground tunnel and a funeral hall.
