Inside Sardinia: Nuraghe Santa Sabina

Around every corner lies a medieval surprise and when we passed Nuraghe Santa Sabina we just had to stop and admire the ancient architecture and beauty.

Unfortunately, we were there in the off-season and the office was closed but that didn’t stop us from stretching our legs, breathing the fresh mountain air and investigating this fabulous structure, albeit from afar.

Nuraghe Santa Sabina is in the small rural town of Silanus in the province of Nuoro. This structure is the perfect example of the ancient Bronze Age stone towers (nuraghe) that dot the island of Sardinia. In front of the nuraghe is a stunning Byzantine style church.

The next time I’m in town a full investigation into this medieval church and nuraghe is a must!

    Any and all detours I can, which usually brings me to a dead-end garbage dump 45 min off my itinerary 🙂

    Great photo of this, you captured all of it! You need to put this all ion a book and sell the book! We saw this one when we were in Sardegna and were able to go into the church. Wonderful and so ancient!
