How to visit the witch's house on Sardinia
Near town Angel Rudge (near Alghero) is the tomb of Domus de Janas, which, as legend says, is home to fairies or for small and very clumsy witches.

Archaeology tells us that these tombs were built over 5,000 years ago, and they were burying the inhabitants of the area, along with their chief treasure. Thanks to excavations here were found ancient jewelry, tools, and on the walls of the tomb are drawings, which had a sacred significance.

The tomb consists of 36 rooms, painted figures and reliefs.
