S'acqua 'e is dolus

S'acqua 'e is dolus is an excavation in the rocks, a so-called Domu de janas (house of the fairies), in the neighbourhood of Settimo San Pietro, Province of Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, constructed in the period 3400-2700 BC.

It consists of two rooms connected by an opening of less than a metre, just like the main entrance. Water from a nearby source enters the rooms and according to a popular tradition, not only is the water safe for drinking, but it also heals pain, from which comes the name of the cave "water that heals pain".
