Nora, Sardinia’s first city
Located 800 meters from the Hotel, Nora is one of the most important archeological sites of the Mediterranean. It has Nuragic origins, however it was the Phoenicians who, between the 9th and 7th century B.C. founded what is considered by many to be Sardinia’s first city. Here, archeologists recovered an artifact reporting for the first time the name of the island.
In the 6th century, its strategic location for docking boats attracted the Carthaginians and later the Romans, who settled here for a long time.
Today, you can still see the remains and ruins of those settlements, in the backdrop of the turquoise colored sea, and dominated by a 16th century tower: a Punic temple and necropolis, Roman thermal baths, the market, a theater and ancient dwellings.
