Description : The nuraghe Genna Maria is an archaeological site in the comune of Villanovaforru, province of South Sardinia. It is located atop a hill in the Marmilla region. The structure is complex, formed by an original central tower, built in the middle Bronze Age, to which later were added other four towers and a bastion. One of the four towers was subsequently sacrificed during a further intervention, that also saw, presumably, the edification of the mighty external wall of hexagonal shape.In the early Iron Age in the site developed a new village.
