I was really looking forward to visiting this ancient well but the signage was damaged and unreadable in places and look a little under appreciated and the well itself had stagnant water laying. Not what I was expecting.

This is a small archeological site with a well and remaning lower walls where ceremonies were performed. From the artifacts found during excavation it is likely that this site dates back to the 15th century before Christ. It is well maintained and accessible with a...More

We drove past it from Olbia, but by driving back we noticed the signs. It has a small carpark, and a very well maintained path to it. The sacred well isn't big, and only one sign to read at it. But nice to visit

This Pozzo Sacro is interesting because it shows that even the ancient people living there believed in sacrification. It is amazing to see such an incredible monument in a place where you would not expect it. I gave it 3 stars because there isn't a...More

Stunningly well preserved Bronze Age well north of Olbia center. You need to go via the zone industriale to get access and parking as the old sign by the national road is completely closed off. Impressive construction with clear waters filling the well.

A remarkable site, not only for its archaeological significance, but for the palpable air of otherness within it. I was not expecting it to be so well preserved and set in a beautiful natural place filled with native plants (which are labelled - a great...More

I think the signposting says it all really! Make the place difficult to find because at least you will have spent as many minutes finding the place as you are likely to spend actually at this place. In fairness the Sards have tried to make...More

First off, this place is slightly tricky to find - the key is to take the small road that is immediately behind the supermarket, which can be difficult to access when you come off the crazy Italian roundabout. Anyway, we arrived expecting to just spend...More
