Why did the Phoenicians choose this place?

The Phoenicians, around the end of the seventh century A.D., occupied the area, useful as a foothold in the trade routes that united the east and west of the Mediterranean, with a commercial emporium.

Why the stele of Nora is so important?

The stele of Nora is particularly important because it is the oldest attestation (in Phoenician) of the name of Sardinia (Srdn).

This stele talks about the construction of a sanctuary dedicated to the god Pumay (male deity known in Cyprus and Carthage) or, according to another interpretation, a military expedition is mentioned.

How was Nora discovered?

The re-emergence of a part of the Punic tophet following a storm (1889) began the excavations.

Archaeological excavations proper started only in 1952, and ended in 1977; then roads and buildings were discovered, Punic and Roman fortifications (Coltellazzo Cape) and Roman tombs, in the area of the isthmus and the thermal baths; part of the city still remains to be excavated.

Why is the church of Sant'Efisio so important for Cagliari?

The church of Sant ‘Efisio in Nora is linked to one of the most important and heartfelt religious festivals in Sardinia: the feast of Sant’ Efisio which takes place in Cagliari on May 1st each year.

During this festival we remember the Fourth Century warrior martyr who, having become a saint, according to tradition, saved Cagliari from the plague of 1652: an entire island stops to repeat a rite almost four centuries long.
