Torre di San Macario – Pula, Sardinia, Italy

Pula is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Cagliari in the Italian region of Sardinia, located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) southwest of Cagliari.

Pula is a holiday resort, with numerous hotels and beaches.

The Tower of San Macario stands on the islet of the same name, a few hundred meters from the tip of Santa Vittoria di Pula.

Also built by the Spaniards at the end of the 16th century to counteract the raids of Saracen pirates, it is not the only building on this small island.

Today there are also the ruins of the Byzantine monastery dedicated to San Macario, those of a small church and remains of an ancient tonnara.
