Culture of Sardinia. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Palme Each town of this wonderful island has its unique cultural traditions and historical monuments. The main symbol of Sassari is Rosello Fountain located near the bridge of the same name. It was built at the spring-well that has been used in the 15th century. Opening of the fountain became a new stage in the life of the city; local women washed linen in it, and workers brought huge barrels to fill them with clean water.

A huge number of old religious buildings have survived on the island. In Cagliari you can see the beautiful St. Mary's Cathedral. Its construction took place in the 18th century; it was decided to build a cathedral on the site of the old Gothic church. It represents an impressive landmark with a strong predominance of elements of baroque architecture, but experts can easily see other styles in its foreside. The place of construction was chosen for a reason, as there is a healing source attracting pilgrims at its walls.
The main tour object of the capital is the Roman amphitheater, a prehistoric building that has perfectly preserved to this day. Thousands of years ago, gladiator fights and horse races watched by thousands of spectators have been held on this grand arena. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Palazzo d'Albios located in the small town of Alghero is notable too. Built in the 16th century, the cathedral is not only impressive in appearance, but also has a unique interior decoration. It should be noted that the old town of Alghero is characterized by an abundance of historical sites. Ancient fortification walls and narrow winding streets with amazing medieval buildings have survived there.
Il porto One of the most interesting historical sites is located in Barumini; we are talking about the famous fortress, Nuraghe of Barumini. There are more than 7000 columns of conical shape there; locals used a rather unusual material – basalt – to construct them. Basalt was mined on the slopes of extinct volcanoes. According to scientists, unique buildings have been erected over 2500 years ago. Unusual historical monuments have managed to survive to the present day only in part; the central tower surrounded by the ruins and lower structures is just amazing. Sardegna strikes curious travelers with an abundance of unique historical landmarks.
