Visited during wrc. The signs that had info of the place were heavily sun burnt. Actually to the point that u couldn't read them. Otherwise no complaints

Un bellissimo Nuraghe del quale ho apprezzato la particolare conformazione architettonica, un po' a corridoio e un po' a tholos, ed il sapiente utilizzo dei pre-esistenti grossi blocchi granitici per rinforzare la struttura e permettere la realizzazione dei livelli superiori; molto intrigante anche il vano "magazzino", a livello poco inferiore del piano di calpestio, al quale si accede da un piccolo ingresso nel lato destro del Nuraghe. Inoltre si trova in mezzo ad una vastissima foresta di sughere che rendono il Nuraghe ancora più apprezzabile e in zona ci sono molti sentieri naturalistici e paesaggistici assolutamente alla portata.

Immense nuraghe located in Buddusò where every year the WRC Rally World Championship takes place just a few steps away. Titanic work ...

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
