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.

To find the Pozzo Sacro is not so easy as the road signs are difficult to see. Easiest is to go by car in the direction to Pittulongo, and turn right when the Pozzo Sacro hotel appears on left side of the road. Pass the...More

It is a very interesting place although there is no one there to offer answers for questions and little literature to read on the place
