Tomba dei giganti di Li Lolghi

Arzachena, Italy

Tomba dei giganti di Li Lolghi is a burial chamber which probably dates back to the period included between 1800-1200 BCE. Like the tomb of  Coddu Vecchiu, it was built in two different phases for different uses: during the Nuragic Age the original Dolmen, high a bit less than 4m and probably belonging to the Bonannaro's culture, was linked to a 10m corridor made up by stones stuck in the ground vertically. This new passageway was the new burial chamber where the dead used to be put in through a small entrance at the bottom of the Dolmen.

A small, yet for me worthwhile archeological site. It's peaceful. You wonder who the people who built this and who were buried there several thousand years ago.

It's not possible to see the sights. Closed for the season I presume. No information on site.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
