Raised at the beginning of the 12th century in a dominating position over the inhabited centre, the Castle of Marmilla had a great importance in the age of local kingdoms, as it marked the boundary walls of the kingdom of Arborea; thus, it covered a military-strategic function within the control of the reign. Several construction stages were revealed by excavation campaigns, which brought to light internal spaces, towers, walkways, lodgings, warehouses, cisterns and a bailey.
