Tharros (also spelled Tharras, Archaic Greek: Θάρρας, Hellenistic Greek, Tarras or Tarrae, Τάρραι) was an ancient city and former bishopric on the west coast of Sardinia, Italy.

It is currently a Latin Catholic titular see and an archaeological site near the village of San Giovanni di Sinis, municipality of Cabras, in the Province of Oristano. It is located on the southern shore of the Sinis peninsula, which forms the northern cape of the Bay of Oristano, by the cape of San Marco. Tharros, mentioned by Ptolemy and in the Itineraries, seems to have been one of the most important places on the island.

  • You must go with a guide or you will look at some stones. With the guide I was taken back thousands of years understanding how the people was living there. I do understand Italian, I don't know if there are any in English
  • Interesting visit with a very expert and kind guide who explained us the history of the place. She was super helpful and provided us with a lot of interesting facts.
  • Historic city with beautiful panorama. If Visiting in summer better morning or evening time - otherwise too hot.
  • Wonderful sunset! I recommend visiting this place!
  • Amazing show of ancient architecture and technology. Incredible, and in all languages too.
