well of Santa Cristina
In the territory of the village of Paulilatino stands the most representative, best preserved, evocative and mysterious nuragic well temple of central-western Sardinia the sanctuary of St. Christine (XII-VIII century BC), the most perfect and fascinating sacred nuragic architecture. Dedicated to the cult of water. Around the sacred well, surrounded by a park of century-old olive trees, a nuraghe and a village of huts inhabited from the Nuragic age until the Middle Ages, tombs of giants and domus de janas merge with the little church dedicated to Santa Cristina, dating back to the 11th century, and the 'muristenes', small lodgings for the faithful, which still today host religious festivals, creating a truly special atmosphere of sacredness.

Near the sacred well there are remains of various constructions attributable to the Nuragic civilization. Particularly noteworthy are those of a large circular hut with a diameter of about 10 meters originally covered (which today has a height of about 1.70 m) with a floor consisting of pebbles, inside which there is a seat (about 30 cm high and 50 deep) that runs along the entire wall and which probably served to gather a part of the community. A short distance from the circular hut there is a fence probably used to guard the animals offered to the temple or even used for sacrifices.
