Nuraghe Losa is a well-preserved nuraghe complex located in the central region of Sardinia, Italy. The site is considered one of the most impressive examples of Nuragic architecture and culture, and is a popular destination for tourists and archaeology enthusiasts.

The complex consists of a central tower surrounded by several smaller towers and structures, as well as a courtyard and other enclosures. The central tower is a three-story structure that measures approximately 13 meters in height and has a diameter of 12 meters. It is made of large, irregularly-shaped blocks of basalt that are carefully fitted together without the use of mortar.

The tower features a complex system of internal chambers and passageways, as well as a series of corbelled arches that support the upper floors. The tower also has a small courtyard, which was likely used for food storage and other activities.

Surrounding the central tower at Nuraghe Losa are several smaller towers and structures, including a series of circular enclosures that were likely used for housing and other activities. The site also features a well-preserved village that was likely inhabited by the Nuragic people who built the complex.

Excavations of the site have uncovered a range of artifacts and objects, including pottery, bronze tools, and animal bones. The artifacts provide insight into the daily lives and activities of the Nuragic people who inhabited the site, and suggest that they were engaged in agriculture, animal husbandry, and other economic activities.

Today, visitors to Nuraghe Losa can explore the tower and surrounding structures, as well as learn about the history and culture of the Nuragic civilization through on-site exhibitions and educational programs.
