Where the moon is mirrored in sacred waters
A charming itinerary to well temples, sacred founts and megaron temples to explore the worship of water and the ritual devotion of Nuragic civilisation
The well temples at Santa Vittoria at Serri, of Sant’Anastasia at Sardara and Santa Cristina at Paulilatino are the best preserved and most extraordinary architectural remains of their kind on Sardinia where, during the second half of the II century BC Nuragic people engaged in religious rites that remain a mystery. The alignment of the temples with the moon and stars offers proof that 4,000 years ago these people already had a keen understanding of astronomy.
