Paulilatino, km 115, SS 131 Sassari-Cagliari, Italy
This exquisite example of a Nuraghic sacred well is easy to find along the highway between Sassari and Cagliari. Most constructions by the Nuraghic people are made from rough-hewn stones. This sacred well, like many others is from exotic stone very precisely shaped and installed. This well still has water in it and has existed since ancient times, surrounded by mysteries. For example in the past during the equinox the sun would shine through the hole to the water. The finely made basalt steps descend to the well itself. It's really amazing to see especially when you realize how old it is.
