Cagliari is the capital of the island of Sardinia.
An ancient city with a long history, Cagliari has seen the rule of several civilizations. It was the capital of the Kingdom of Sardinia (which in the 1861 became the Kingdom of Italy) from 1324 to 1720 and from 1798 to 1815. The city is an important regional cultural, educational, political and artistic centre, known for its diverse Art Nouveau architecture and several monuments. - in: wikipedia

 Sardinia is also an economic and industrial hub, having one of the biggest ports in the Mediterranean sea.
Cagliari has one of the longest beaches in Italy. The Poetto beach stretches for 13 km and was famous for its white fine-grained sand. A recent controversial intervention to save the beach from erosion has slightly altered the original texture of the sand. - in: wikipedia

The Basilica della Santissima Trinità di Saccargia is a church in the comune of Codrongianos, northern Sardinia, Italy. It is the most important Romanesque site in the island. The construction is entirely in local stone (black basalt and white limestone), with a typical appearance of Tuscan Romanesque style.
The church was finished in 1116 over the ruins of a pre-existing monastery, and consecrated on October 5 of the same year. Its construction was ordered by the giudice (judge) of Torres. It was entrusted to Camaldolese monks who here founded an abbey. It was later enlarged in Pisane style, including the addition of the tall bell tower. The portico on the façade is also probably a late addition, and is attributed to workers from Lucca.
The church was abandoned in the 16th century, until it was restored and reopened in the early 20th century. - in: wikipedia

Pula in the Province of Cagliari in the Italian region Sardinia, located about 25 km southwest of Cagliari.
The Nora archaeological site is a pre-Roman village on which the Romans later built. The theatre and the thermal baths are still in good condition.
Because the southern part of Sardinia is sinking into the Mediterranean Sea, a substantial part of the former town is now under the sea
The ruins of Nora function as an open-air museum, and the remains of the theatre is occasionally used for concerts in the summer. - in:
