Santa Cristina - Paulilatino, Sardinia

Santa Cristina - Paulilatino, Sardinia

Diana D.
Dated back to 1000 BC, the sacred Nuragic well of Santa Cristina is one of nearly a hundred water temples of Sardinia - and one of the most well-preserved wells. Remnants of sacred water temples from the Nuragic culture, have been found all over Sardinia, suggesting an ancient religious practice that involved the use of water in the rites of worship. These Nuragic water temples, are individual cult buildings that are centered around wells and water fonts – using various architectural constructions in their systems of water collection. Based on the influence of Nuragic architectural trends in the surrounding water temples of the surrounding area and the excavation information, this reconstruction of Santa Cristina in Paulilatino, Sardinia is intended to create a virtual model to analyze and experience the use of water in ritual practices and religious constructions in ancient times.
