Najväčšia pevnosť v strednej európe a možná aj v európe a my to nevieme využiť. Je pravda, že sa toho už veľa zmenilo a je vidieť prácu čo tu odviedli - klubúk dolu pred ich prácou. Vadia a špatia v tom pevnostnom systéme všetky firmy a súkromné bývania. Toto by tu nemalo čo robiť. Mali by sa páni z mesta zamyslieť či to tam patrí !!!!???? Videl som už aj iné pevnosti podobné v Komárne ale neboli rozpredané. Celý pevnostný systém by mohol byť zlatou baňou pre mesto. Turisti radi vidia históriu a prinesú peniaze a pre miestnych prácu, len to treba s rozumom využiť.

Monte d'Accoddi

Monte d"Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located in the territory of Sassari. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. It was constructed by the Ozieri culture or earlier, with the oldest parts dated to around 4,000–3,650 BC.

The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. No chambers or entrances to the mound have been found, leading to the presumption it was an altar, a temple or a step pyramid. It may have also served an observational function, as its square plan is coordinated with the cardinal points of the compass.

The initial Ozieri structure was abandoned or destroyed around 3000 BC, with traces of fire found in the archeological evidence. Around 2800 BC the remains of the original structure were completely covered with a layered mixture of earth and stone, and large blocks of limestone were then applied to establish a second platform, truncated by a step pyramid (36 m × 29 m, about 10 m in height), accessible by means of a second ramp, 42 m long, built over the older one. This second temple resembles contemporary Mesopotamian ziggurats, and is attributed to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture.

Archeological excavations from the chalcolithic Abealzu-Filigosa layers indicate the Monte d"Accoddi was used for animal sacrifice, with the remains of sheep, cattle, and swine recovered in near equal proportions. It is among the earliest known sacrificial sites in Western Europe.

The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 14,9 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
