The Serbissi Nuraghe in the Osini area was built on the Taccu plateau at about 1000 meters above sea level in a position dominating the valley of the Rio Taquisara.

The nuraghe rests on a flat area of calcareous rock and consists of a main tower with a tholos roof and three secondary towers connected by a curved bastion wall. The entrance of the main tower gives access to a trapezoid corridor that leads into the lower chamber and to a spiral staircase connected to the upper room that has an irregular circular shape.

The floor consists of a natural platform with an original slit that was used as a channel for draining water.

The bases of a circular group of eight huts around the nuraghe survive. The interior of the rooms was paved with packed slabs whilst layers of burnt clay indicate the positions of hearths. Clay was also widely used to insulate the conical roofs that were made from wooden beams and branches. The ceramic products date back to the Middle and Late Bronze age (1500-1300 BC).

The abundance and extent of nuraghe finds and sites contrast with the paucity of finds from the Phoenician-Punic, Roman and Medieval periods. These gaps are due to the fact that there was little Carthaginian and Roman contact with the area owing to the area and, at least initially, the resistance of the local population.

The Ogliastra area was converted to Christianity in the Medieval period.
