A corner of history and tranquillity in southern Sardinia

If you are on a voyage of discovery in Sardinia, you must stop to visit Pula. The village is only a few kilometres from Cagliari. The origins of the town date back as far as Phoenician times, although the town has passed under various dominations, including those of the Pisans and the Aragonese. 

The centre of Pula is home to a number of interesting buildings, such as the neoclassical Villa di Santa Maria, designed by Cagliari architect Gaetano Cima, or the Romanesque church of Sant'Efisio, the burial place of the saint according to tradition. 

Pula is an excellent starting point for exploring the surroundings. In particular, visit the archaeological site of Nora, witness to centuries of history. It now covers four hectares and contains some of the best-preserved mosaics in Sardinia. 

The area's coastline is impossible not to mention. There are numerous places to stop, such as the Is Figus beach, in the Bay of Nora, and Su Guventeddu, perfect for families with children. Surfing enthusiasts can head for the Campumatta beach instead.
