This archaeological site, of immeasurable beauty from a historical and architectural point of view, in fact remains incomprehensibly abandoned to itself. It is with great regret to ascertain the havoc it has had to suffer over the years. I hope that sooner or later it will be fixed to see it reborn. It is the hope of anyone who is passionate about Nuragic archeology.

Another sacred well, this is the Milis. In the municipality of Golfo Aranci. it was destroyed by railroad cobstrucão in the period 800. I felt some vibrations and I didn't like them .. ?? everyone believes in what they want .. Ah, the well has 40 steps down So I couldn't get to the bottom ?? How to get : Use Olbia and keep the coast of Pittulongu (SP 82), Once you reach the Golfo Aranci station, if you continue your feet along the railway line for about 300 m: the well is located in the diameter of the underground wall of the sea @ Pozzo sacro Milis

The 5 stars are for the state of conservation and resistance of this ancient structure. The level of signaling of the monument and the ease of reaching it deserve a star as well as the ability of the municipality to enhance and make this artefact of Nuragic archeology usable for the community. Why not make sure that, in addition to the usual sea, these places are an attraction for a committed and studious tourism? The country would certainly benefit from it. Moreover, many people go and look for the structure and not finding indications they desist from visiting it.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
