My family and I got to see this site while we were visiting Sardinia. We all enjoy history and were able to walking around the area looking at the history of the area. more »
Beautiful place very scenic and clean, would defo go back, beach was clean and quiet, quite a steep walk up to the top and the tower was fenced off, but still worth it for the views and photo... more »
One of the highlights of the tour, well worth the visit. Great view from the very top. You can only visit this as part of the tour but the tour is only €7.50 per person.
Nora is an ancient Roman and Phoenician city placed on a peninsula near Pula, near to Cagliari in Sardinia. The tower is located on a promontory on the south-western Gulf of Cagliari, near to the Coltellazzo island and the archaeological remains of the Punic-Roman settlement of Nora. The first military settlement was probably present at the beginning of the fourteenth century. The tower was active from 1607. In the eighteenth century the building was contained in a fort, built in a period of six years (1722-1728) by the Piedmont engineer Antonio Felix de Vincenti. Later (in the nineteenth century) further work was carried out and the tower became a lighthouse. The tower has a structure of a truncated cone, with a height of about 11 meters and is 12 meters in diameter at the base. Inside it has a double ribbed vaulted dome, supported by a central pillar.
