Tiscali Village is an archaeological site situated in Sardinia, in the comune of Dorgali.

It is situated within a large cave in Monte Tiscali. It consists of the remains of a number of round dwellings dating from the first millennium BC.

The site was re-discovered a little over a century ago and was first documented by the Italian historian Ettore Pais in 1910 [1] and later in greater detail by Antonio Taramelli in 1927. There was a short excavation campaign in 2000 by the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici per le Provincie di Sassari e Nuoro.

Telecommunications company Tiscali took its name from the site.
