Nora was among the first Phoenician settlements in Sardinia and was founded, according to literary testimony and legend, from a hero of Iberian origin called Norac.
The foundation and therefore the life of the city, began in the ‘eighth century. A. C. but develops mainly in the Punic period, between the V and the III sec. BC, becoming the administrative and religious center as well as commercial. And so it remained until 238 BC year of the Roman conquest of the island, which gradually transformed the face of the city that became the seat of the Roman governor and the municipium, as attested us a ‘inscription of the first century. A.D. the period of greatest flowering of the Roman center is the one between the II and III sec. and as evidenced by archaeological remains and most of the buildings seen today.
Its decline began in the fifth century. A.D., following the occupation of the island by the Vandals (456-466 A.D.), and was finally abandoned around the eighth century. A.D. because of Arab raids that forced the inhabitants of the Sardinian coast to move inland. The habits of norensi are easily deduced from the monuments: the theater, houses of worship, spas, hole, stately homes, mosaics, aqueducts. Everything points to the importance of economic, political and cultural center that covered especially in the middle period of his vita.Oggi Nora is still alive, archaeological research continues and we still speak of the past but, above all; He is living in the nostalgia of all those who have visited it and not forget it.
