Starting from a hill next to the small town of Santadi, it is possible to see how the urban development system develops in concentric circles. This fact gave rise to the hypothesis that Santadi is what remains of the capital of the island mentioned by Plato in the third chapter of the Timaeus and in Critias.[2][3]
