Cagliari’s Archaeological Museum was the perfect follow up to yesterday’s visit to Su Nuraxi. The museum displayed a number of finds from the neolithic period through the nuraghic and on to the Romans. Particularly interesting were the bronze figurines from the nuraghi and the clay fertility goddesses from the same period. It was well displayed with explanations in English.
In the afternoon we caught a train to Iglesias. (Contrary to stereotype, I found Italian trains and buses highly reliable and comfortable). The town seemed curiously underpopulated but it was a center of Spanish rule and the medieval Pisan and Spanish architecture made it worth a stop.
