Santa Teresa Gallura

The village dates back to the Roman era, when it was known as Longosardo, and was a strategic port for trading the granite extracted just a few kilometres from the ancient caves at Capo Testa. After the fort was destroyed by Genoa during the time of the Maritime Republics, the city was almost completely abandoned before being rebuilt in its current form by the Savoy family after 1800.


Santa Teresa and Surroundings

Torre di Longosardo

Built in 1590 at the wishes of Philip II of Spain, on a rocky spur overlooking the bay and the surrounding open sea, this tower is the largest Spanish tower built in Sardinia. The town owes its origins to the tower, as the Savoys chose to build Santa Teresa on this site due to the ancient fort.

Lu Brandali

This important archaeological site is located 1.5 kilometres from Santa Teresa, in the direction of Capo Testa. Founded by the Sardinian Nuragic civilisation, you can still see the ruins of a village of circular huts, a giant’s tomb and a nuraghe.
