Little moon, it seems to me, and a lot of granitic bolus, the result of an erosion that our satellite never had. Set to be bucolic, these green spring pastures where cattle graze, surrounded by jagged mountains, invite you to watch and hide from Aeolus, who has taken this valley for his home, at least today.

You arrive at the Izzana nuraghe after a dirt and narrow road, the last kilometers with holes but it is a magical place. In the light of the sunset, the reflections of the sun on the stones have increased its charm. Well preserved, in a typically Sardinian context (Valley of the moon with gray granite boulders and cows) it is worth a visit.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
