A fortified promontory settlement in the southwestern part of the island excavated by R. Grosjean in the 1950s. The main feature of the site is a Bronze Age torre or tower.

It dates to the mid 2nd millennium bc, and incorporates fragments of statue menhirs showing men armed with bronze daggers and swords.
