Situated in the extreme north of Sardinia, Santa Teresa Gallura is a relatively young village; its foundation dates from the nineteenth century, for the will of Vittorio Emanuele I of Savoy.
Actually, this narrow piece of land that stretches to Corsica was inhabited since very ancient times; the first settlement, as witnessed by some archaeological sites, dating back, in fact, to the nuragic period, around 4000 BC.
Tourist centre and bridge to Corsica
Today, Santa Teresa Gallura is a town of about 4,000 inhabitants, where tourism plays a key role, being the main source of wealth. But the activities do not stop with the end of the summer, and Santa Teresa, although to a lesser extent, remains an important centre during the winter months, with its shops and activities. Its port also plays an important role, providing daily connections to and from Corsica, reachable in about an hour's journey. Ideal for an alternative excursion during your holiday in Sardinia!
