Location: Between Osini and Gairo Taquisara
How to Get There: From the south take the SS125 north to Tortoli until Cardedu, turn left towards Jerzu but you must turn right onto La Strada 28 just before the bridge. DO NOT go over the bridge as this is a far longer route. Stay with the river on your left hand side, continue on this road climbing up and around the valley until you arrive in Gairo. Follow signs to Gairo Vecchio and continue on this road down the valley, over the river at the bottom and back up the other side turning right at the sign for Gairo Taquisara. Upon entering the little town of Gairo Taquisara some two or three kilometres later continue past the bar on the right, over the railway track and some 300m on the left hand side is a sign post for Nuraghe Serbissi. There is space for parking here, the path to the nuraghe leads from here for 100m through the trees and parallel to the raod before crossing the railway track and heading up the side of the valley. From Nuoro take the main road SS389 towards Lanusei until the junction for the SS198 to Gairo. Without turning into the main town of Gairo continue on this road, leading you down past Gairo Vecchio and to the bottom of the valley, over the river and up the other side until the right hand bend to Gairo Taquisara. Upon entering the little town of Gairo Taquisara some two or three kilometres later continue past the bar on the right, over the railway track and some 300m on the left is the sign for the Nuraghe Serbissi.
Description: After walking the path (approx. 35mins) up the side of the valley you find a cave that runs under the nuragic site the sits on the ridge of the slope. Continue left to go immediately to the nuraghe or go through the cave and turn left upon exit. The nuraghe has a good tower, two or three smaller towers and visible remains of other "rooms/houses" around the site.
