Driving in Sardinia is a joy thanks to its green hills, its variable coastline and the many surprises that await during the journey.
On the way to Oristano inside the Barbagia there are some interesting places to stop along the way.
The sacred well of Santa Cristina is a good example a few kilometers north of Oristano following the fast highway 131.
In the place you will find a sacred well from the Nuraga period very well preserved. A long staircase takes you into the dark depths of a circular enclosure with a narrow opening in the ceiling. Around the well you can see old buildings that according to the guides probably formed an old market.
You can make daily visits to the place in Italian that are included with the ticket price: 3 euros.
When you finish the visit, you get in the car and enjoy the journey waiting for a new surprise along the way.
