The Nuragic civilization lived on the island of Sardina, present day Italy from approximately 1800 B.C. until 200 B.C. They were a Neolithic culture who built stone dwellings and sacred wells such as this one, Nuragic Sanctuary of Santa Cristina. Many sacred Nuragic wells can be found on Sardina but Santa Cristina is the most intact. It is believed that it was used in rituals pertaining to a cult of water.
