The Italian island of Sardinia spent the late Middle Ages and most of the Early Modern period under control of Spain, first the Kingdom of Aragon and later the modern Spanish nation-state.  In 1595, the Spanish overlords constructed a tower near Issola Rosa, on the island's northern coast.  Its purpose was to observe and combat the piracy which was rampant in this part of the Mediterranean.  You can see this impressive landmark from above in this drone video by Energy Butterfly.  

Glorious South Sardinia




The Italian island of Sardinia can't really be called "undiscovered" - it's home to over 1.5 million permanent residents and receives roughly twice that many tourist arrivals per year.  That being said, by far its most populated and tourist-heavy areas are on its northern coasts, notably on the northeastern Costa Smerelda and the northwestern Stentino Peninsula.  In this drone video by emanuelepinna, you'll get some great aerial views of a much quieter side of Sardinia - its southern coastline.
