Tratalias: a ghost town of wonders

Tratalias, a small medieval town in Sulcis, had a population of just over 1,500 in the 1950s when it started to be damaged by the infiltration of water from a dyke built near Rio Palmas, and the resulting construction of the Monte Pranu reservoir.

The worsening damage forced the town government to rebuild the town in a nearby, slightly hilly area where the residents were all relocated.
