THE NURAGHIC SPRING OF SU NOTANTE
At a distance of 200-250 metres from the sacred complex of Janna ‘e Pruna, at 530 metres above sea level, near the Riu Remulis, there is a interesting sacred spring built in a beautiful opera isodoma with squared basaltic ashlars. In the 1994 the building has been subject to a archaeological excavation, under the scientific supervision by the Archaeological Service for Cultural Heritage to the Provinces of Sassari and Nuoro. What survives of the monument, (damaged in the twenties by the works that were carried out to build a water system) dedicated to the water gods, are the west side of the façade, that is a sort of monumental architectural shirt facing the natural rock, and the well collecting the spring water, that have trapezoidal opening, a flatband roofing and a sub-rectangular flat basin. Fixed into the west part of the façade there is a robust enclosure/terracing made of big rough-hewn granitic ashlars facing S>N. The monument can be placed in a period between the Late Advanced Bronze Age and the Final Bronze Age (XII-X century B.C.). The sacred building is similar to other nuraghic structures, where water was worshipped, like to the spring Santa Lulla of Orune (NU).
