The municipality is located at an altitude of 320 meters above sea level, in the historical region of Marmilla, famous for the presence of the highland of the Giara that dominates it and for having given birth to the blessed Capuchin Brother Nicholas.

"casa Zapata" is a marvelous and complex residence erected by the ancient and aragonese family of the Zapata family from the end of the 16th century. The members of this family arrived in Sardinia in 1323 following the Infante Alfonso who was preparing to conquer the island, then settled in Cagliari (one of the Royal Cities) and in 1541 bought the Baronia of Las Plassas, Barumini and Villanovafranca, becoming lords and then barons, and coming to administer it until the abolition of the feudal regime.
In the nineties of the last century during the restoration of the palace it was discovered that the Zapata palace was built over the well-preserved remains of a nuragic settlement that the archaeologist Giovanni Lilliu, as it is located near the parish church, called Nuraxi and Cresia.
Thanks to an architectural restoration project of great scenographic impact elaborated by the architect Pietro Reali, both the baronial palace and the underlying nuraghe, appropriately brought to light, have become the site of a museum complex (called Museo Casa Zapata), inaugurated on July 29th 2006.
