Nora is one of Sardinia’s most exciting locations. Set moments from Pula, Nora is the name given to a vast archaeological site, once inhabited by Romans. There’s a beautiful sandy beach nearby, and the medieval Church of Sant'Efisio, which is believed to have been built on the exact spot the saint found martyrdom. There’s nothing more to interrupt the ancient landscape, so you’ll find that Nora still looks remarkably like it did many centuries before.
One of the few developments involves the restoration and examination of the Nora Archaeological Site – believed to be the first town ever built on the island. Chosen for its easily accessible location, Nora became an impressive power when sea trading initially developed. Dating from as far back as the 9th century BC, this historic town is now an excavated site, staffed by knowledgeable guides. The town of Pula is situated just three miles from Nora and offers plenty of restaurants and a lovely beach.
