Travel through Sardinia

Restore the well-being

 

Aristotle wrote that in Sardinia was enough to lie down adjacent to the Tombs of the Giants[1](funerary monuments that consist of collective burials belonging to the nuragic era, second millennium BC, and present in all of Sardinia) to get rid of nightmares and obsessions, because according to legend, the tombs belonged to individuals of gigantic proportions that would have lived in Sardinia in a remote time, hence the name given to the burials of nuragic civilization. It is believed that the nuragic stones  of Sardinia, impressive evidence of ancient civilizations, could be wrapped in a strong magnetic energy that can improve the mental well-being. It is also believed that the Tomb of the Giants of “Li Mizzani”, Palau, has a strong power and energy and for that reason there are people that come here to recharge themselves with positive energy. We don’t know if it is true or not that these places have a energetic power, but of course, an immersion in the most hidden Sardinia, has the power to transform your holidays in a wonderful sense of well-being. Of the same advice are also newspaper of other countries, such as the “New York Times“, “The Sunday Times“, the german “Bunte“, and also the popular british newspaper “Daily Mail“, who recently warmly invited its readers to discover the beauty of Sardinia. Because here, in these mountain areas, but  only a couple of hours  far from the more popular and famous Costa Smeralda (see post), you can see places outside of time with spectacular mountain sceneries, such as that of the majestic  Supramonte Massif, or walk trough paths and hidden gardens, where you will not meet anyone except the shepherds with their sheep. Great places to enjoy the view of sunsets that will leave you breathless, and of skies so full of stars that remember me of Africa for their quantities! If in addition to the sea and the spectacular nature of the island you are also interested in its millenarian history, you should visit too the  Sacred Wells(temples inside the wells) built because  the cult of water was strong. One of them is the Well of Santa Cristina, Paulilatino, built near the year 1000 BC, defined “princely” by Giovanni Lilliu, a famous italian archaeologist, where water still flows through an aquifer perennial.

[1] The Tombs of the Giants were ossuaries in which to deposit the remains of the dead once they had become skeletons. Most likely the nuragic sardinian stripped the flesh from the bones before burial(traces have been found of this practice on the bones), and buried the bones when they reached a large number. The cults at the Tombs of the Giants are to be connected to the God Toro and the Goddess Mother and, according to some theories, the shape of the building recalls both a bovine head and a woman giving birth (death was linked to birth according to the principle of rebirth ). The Tombs can be found scattered throughout the island with a particular concentration in the central part; the known ones are 800 and of particular interest are those of Capichera, Li Lolghi and Coddu Vecchju, near Arzachena, those of Madau, near Fonni, those of Tamuli, near Macomer. The oldest tomb of the giants existing in Sardinia is the tomb called Su Cuaddu ‘e Nixias, located in the territory of Lunamatrona (VS), 1700-1600 BC.
