About this location
The Sardinia region
Pula is located near the ancient city of Nora, founded according to legend by the Iberians conducted in Sardinia Norace. Nora was built by the Phoenicians around the eighth century BC probably of pre-existing settlements nuragici of which there are some testimonials. He spent the following centuries before the Carthaginians and then the Romans who raised it for a short time in the provincial capital of Sardinia and Corsica, and then give the charge to the nearby Caralis (modern Cagliari). After the end of the Roman Empire, like many other ancient Sardinian coastal cities, because of the Saracen raids the city of Nora ceased to exist from the eighth century AD about ..
In the Middle Ages the area, then called Padulis de Nura (Marsh Nora), was part of the Judges of Cagliari and during the Spanish-Aragonese period was given to various feudal lords. From the eighteenth century saw a revival mainly due to agricultural reclamation initially promoted by religious and then also state that intensified the reclamation and development of olive and fruit growing.
The country still has a decent center. In Corso Vittorio Emanuele is the Museum Patrons John, archaeological museum which houses relics from Nora. In the church of San Giovanni Battista (XIX century), in Piazza Giovanni XXIII, are of marble sarcophagi, one of which contains the remains of a duchess Cagliari. Not far away is the Piazza del Popolo. On the way to Nora meets the aristocratic Villa Santa Maria, designed by the architect Gaetano Cima in the first half of the nineteenth century on the ruins of the ancient church of the same name.
In the promontory of Capo di Pula there are the ruins of the ancient city founded by the Phoenicians, who in all probability is the first and most important center on the island. The remains were discovered accidentally when a violent storm resumed light in one part of the funeral of Tophet. The outstanding discoveries followed one another, the most striking finding was certainly the theater, probably also for its good storage conditions. This work is currently being used for an interesting cultural event. Not far away a single column indicates the Roman Temple and adjacent to it the Forum, social and economic center of the city. Not far away is the temple dedicated to the goddess Tanit, supposition advanced by the discovery of a stone pyramid, which would appear divinity. A very interesting building is undoubtedly the spa complex, whose ruins just give the idea impressiveness of the structure.
Seguendo le indicazioni per la città di Nora, poco prima del sito si erge la chiesa di Sant'Efisio (XII secolo). È stata costruita nel luogo in cui il santo ha subito il martirio. Ai piedi del santuario si stende la spiaggia di Su Guventeddu (dal sardo Guventeddu, piccolo convento). Poco più avanti si trova la laguna di Nora, nei pressi della quale è sorto recentemente il Centro di Educazione Ambientale, con l'acquarium ed una serie di vasche con le specie marine più rappresentative dell'ecosistema lagunare. Dopo la laguna, sempre seguendo la litoranea, s'incontrano le spiagge di Punta d'Agumu e Foxi 'e Sali, in corrispondenza degli unici ingressi consistenti. Poco distante sorge il notevole borgo turistico/agricolo di Santa Margherita di Pula, cresciuto inizialmente intorno alla chiesa dedicata alla Santa Martire. La vasta pineta è stata impianta nel dopoguerra, contemporaneamente ai progetti di trasformazione agraria, ed è attualmente asservita al settore turistico. Nella costa antistante si susseguono le spiagge di Cala d'Ostia, dove sorge il porto turistico e poco più avanti la splendida Cala Verde. La maggior parte degli ingressi per questi arenili si trovano nei pressi dei villaggi turistici.
