  • .. and breathtaking views of the old and the beautiful sea. Not an easy climb to the top but it's worth it!

  • Built at the end of 1500 to protect the coasts of Sardinia from pirate attacks coming from the African coast, in 1950 was renovated to house the radiotelephony. Sits on an outcropping of volcanic rock and is surrounded by a sea of wonderful colors. From the tower you can enjoy the beaches of Nora and the nearby Tower of San Macario. Open the site of Nora (visit included in the same ticket)

  • One of the highlights of the tour, well worth the visit. Great view from the very top. You can only visit this as part of the tour but the tour is only €7.50 per person.
  • Nora is an ancient Roman and Phoenician city placed on a peninsula near Pula, near to Cagliari in Sardinia. The tower is located on a promontory on the south-western Gulf of Cagliari, near to the Coltellazzo island and the archaeological remains of the Punic-Roman settlement of Nora. The first military settlement was probably present at the beginning of the fourteenth century. The tower was active from 1607. In the eighteenth century the building was contained in a fort, built in a period of six years (1722-1728) by the Piedmont engineer Antonio Felix de Vincenti. Later (in the nineteenth century) further work was carried out and the tower became a lighthouse. The tower has a structure of a truncated cone, with a height of about 11 meters and is 12 meters in diameter at the base. Inside it has a double ribbed vaulted dome, supported by a central pillar.
  • Should be warned that access is with ticket and guide only. Was hoping to have a little explore
  • To visit! Is included in the visit of the archaeological site of Nora!
