Description : The necropolis of Su Crucifissu Mannu is an archaeological site located in the municipality of Porto Torres, Sardinia. The necropolis includes at least twenty-two domus de janas, all made in the period between the Neolithic (IV millennium BC ) and the Copper Age (III millennium BC) and intensely used until the time of Bonnanaro culture (1800–1600 BC). Some internal chambers are decorated with symbolic elements (stylized bull's horns) and architectural elements (steps, contoured doors, lintels) typical of the period, carved in relief in the rock.
