If you are a travel enthusiast, you already know that exploring the mysterious places of the past, which were once really special places, is a totally different ball game. Not only do you travel back in history, but you also get to enjoy - and appreciate - the present. Sardinia, the largest island in Italy, is one such travel destination.
While there are so many fascinating things about this Mediterranean Sea’s second-largest island, it's guarding monuments are the foremost ones. Looking at these mysterious monuments, you can not help but wonder why these towers were built for. Simultaneously, you will also find yourself in awe of the incredible mastery of the architecture of old age.
However, what is fascinating about these mysterious towers is that they are visible from afar. Even if you have not yet made it to the actual island of Sardinia, you will spot these towers guarding the entire island. If you set them your destination mark, the distance will look nearer from afar.
So, it will be creative of you if you set these monuments as your destination points. In turn, these mysterious towers, standing tall above the entire island of Sardinia, will lead you to the most beautiful sights of the island. It goes without saying that the beauty of Sardinia is simply breathtaking. From lush greenery to pastures, the island gives a bird's eye view of the great Mediterranean Sea. But what is more mysterious about the largest Italian Island is these monuments.
The Mysterious & Megalithic Towers of Sardinia
Historians are unsure about the purpose of building these megalithic towers. There is an assumption that these were built to guard the routes of Sardinia that were once used in ancient times.
The route to Sardinia and the megalithic towers are filled with pebbles. Frankly speaking, there are no proper roads on this island. Instead, you will have to make your own way crossing rocks and wild bushes. Once you cross these ancient routes, you will end up speculating on the most mysterious towers of Sardinia.
Locally, these massive towers are called “Nuraghi,” which nearly translates into flint or hard stones. Looking at these towers, you can tell the building blocks of these monuments are not mere rocks. Rather, some hard stones called “Nuraghi” were used while building them.
These towers are not located at the heart of the island. Instead, you will have to climb all your way up to the top hill to see these megalithic towers. Historians argue that these towers were built some 70000 years ago. Whether or not that is true is out of the discussion at this point. The concern of the visitor, instead, should be the beauty and mystery of these monuments that are still unaffected after so many years.
