The restoration works on the Punic walls

Punic Walls

Description of the site:
This is the only surviving tract of the old city wall of the Punic city, which was founded around 350 BC, subsequently restored and maintained, even during the Roman conquest. One can observe an approximately 50 m tract of the western wall, in which opens a gate into the city, flanking the base of another tower. The wall was constructed from heavy, squared blocks of granite, some of which present the characteristic "ashlar" facing.

How to get there: The monument is located amidst the urbanized area between via Torino and via Acquedotto (not far from the central post office). The site is freely visible at all times.

Available services: Information signs, nocturnal illumination.
