What to see

  • The church of Santa Cristina, built with basalt blocks, famous for the sacred wells, probably linked to the pre-Nuragic cult of water worship and astronomy. Each year only during the equinoxes sunrays go down the staircase at the entrance and reach the water. Moreover, every 18 years and 6 months there is another, much stranger phenomenon, called "moon in the well": the moon, at its maximum declination is entirely reflected in the water.
  • The Nuraghe Lugheras, on among Sardinia's most interesting prehistoric stone towers
