    A gem from the early Christian period to visit. She was among the first Christian churches erected in Sardinia.

    Don't think that you are in front and a large monument is just a grandiose and dazzling small stone church that seems to arise naturally from the Earth. The sense of the mystical and sacred that conveys makes it unique

    Church of the 11th century very bare sandstone. Cute for a visit from 5 minutes since we pass by going to the site of Tharros

  • A place to linger and to yourself to come: from the outside it looks clunky, inside thick pillars support the roof. In this venerable space preserved something of the early Christian faith, he exudes strength, dignity and compact beauty - despite later conversions.
