The silence of time that tells legends of a distant people and precise calendars.
The most representative and best preserved nuragic well temple in Sardinia.
It is the highest architectural expression of a civilization, the Nuragic one, dating back to 3,500 years ago.
In September from 21st to 23rd at 12.00 and in March from 18th to 21st at 11.00 on the occasion of the equinoxes the sun perfectly lights up the bottom of the well through the stairwell.
The sun, with its rays, is reflected inside the well until it touches the water. In this circumstance the observer, while descending
the last 6 internal steps, is accompanied by two shadows:one is projected into the water, the other descends from the tholos chamber upside down. The phenomenon, obviously, arouses much wonder in those who live it.
Every 18.6 years, during the period of greater lunistice, the moonlight reaches the mirror of water reflecting perpendicularly through the hole of about 30 cm of the tholos room. Theories established since 1972 by intuition of Carlo Maxia and Lello Fadda with the support of the astronomer Edoardo Proverbio. Theories that in 2005 bring to Sardinia Professor Arnold Lebeuf author of the book “Il pozzo di Santa Cristina a lunar observatory ” in 2011, after 5 years of study.
