Monte d’Accoddi Sardinia

Monte d’Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located near Porto Torres. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. The original structure was built by the Ozieri culture or earlier c. 4,000-3,650 BC. The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age. The surroundings of the Monte d’Accoddi have been excavated in the 1960s, and have provided the signs of a considerable sacred center. Near the south-eastern corner of the monument there is a dolmen, and across the ramp stands a considerable menhir, one of several standing stones which was formerly found in the vicinity.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 20 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
