#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Province of Carbonia-Iglesias
The Temple of Antas is an ancient Carthaginian-Roman temple in the commune of Fluminimaggiore, southern Sardinia, Italy. It is located in an area colonised by the Carthaginians and then by the Romans, attracted by its iron and lead deposits.It consists of a Roman temple, under whose steps are the remains of the Carthaginian one, which was dedicated to the god Sid Addir, a later incarnation of the local god Sardus Pater Babai, the main male divinity of the Nuragic civilization.The original temple had been built around 500 BC over a sacred limestone outcrop, and restored around 300 BC. The Roman temple was built by emperor Augustus (27 BC - 14 AD) and restored under Caracalla (213-217 AD). Its remains were discovered in 1836 by general Alberto La Marmora, and rebuilt to the current status in 1967.The fore section of the temple includes six columns, with a height of some 8 metres, with Ionic capitals. Originally a triangular pediment was also present. The cella was accessed through two side openings and had a mosaic-covered pavement, part of which has been preserved. The temple was provided with two square reservoirs, which housed the water for the sacred rites of purification.

  • Near Fluminimaggiore, I consider interesting, among other things, a visit to the Temple of Antas, dedicated to Sardus Pater "also known as" B ". The ruins of the temple are situated in a beautiful green area, well maintained and managed. Within the area, near the beginning, as well as to make a ticket, you can stop to eat something at the bar. A little tiring, for those who don't make trekking, go and visit the "Roman quarries" which, at least to the undersigned, have disappointed a bit. Very nice, in different direction of travel, the Cork oak.

  • For €4 entrance you can see the temple, Roman quarries, the nuraghic village and century-old oak... Good walks in perspective and a good time in view, the bar/restaurant/gift shop of convenient and affordable...

  • After a very beautiful and scenic, actually even a bit anxiety-provoking:), at 12 km from Fluminimaggiore found this structure (well kept) whose visit is divided into three parts: the nuragic village, the Temple of Antas and the old oak tree. The temple is very impressive and is dedicated to the cult of Sardus Pater. Nice environment. In the hotel there is also a refreshment bar. Always attracted by the products of the place, I take the Sardinian platter with meats and cheeses. Everything was extra salty so as not to perceive the flavors. Minus negative of this visit. Therefore, the site visit, no al salami and cheeses.

  • Very nice site. 4€ entrance fee. Nice little cafe. Hiking trails pretty tough (steep & partially loose ground)
  • Cheap, easy to access and very clean. Valuable prices for drinks as well. Just ine temple but this is a quite nice one
  • Temple beautiful within an equally beautiful Archaeological Park. Held up well, with several things to see, the temple, the nuragic village etcc is worth a visit for its beautiful road that goes from iglesias comes to the Park. I'd also suggest continuing to Villacidro crossing the mountains in a breathtaking view.
