A bit of history

The ancient land of Sardegna has been inhabited by the phoenicians, romans, arabs, byzantine, pisans, genoese, spanish, etc.
4000 years ago Sardegna was inhabited by the ancient nuragic civilization, now mysteriously extinct. The nuragic people left us the nuraghe.

We took FJ to see one, but unfortunately we could not go in….

Nuraghe
Can you see the nuraghe?

In the medieval times, the pisans owned most of Sardegna, including Siliqua and Iglesias. They built a lot of castles, like the one in Siliqua, and fortification walls: the ones you see here are 1000 years old.

Here you see one of the defensive towers. FJ is held by one of my colleagues, Mrs. Veronica Bisio (thank you)

The one you see here is the liberty facade of a historical place in Iglesias: the pastry shop Lamarmora, which is 100 years old.
