The island of Sant’Antioco is situated in the south-western part of Sardinia, connected to the motherland by an artificial isthmus and is the largest among the smaller Sardinian islands. Close to the ferry for San Pietro paradise island and situated at the foot of Castle Hill, Sant’Antioco is the island’s main town.
The town was inhabited as far back as the 3rd millennium B.C. but its history began in the VIII Century B.C. During this time period, the Phoenicians founded the city of Sulky, later transformed into the Latin Sulci and today’s Sant’Antioco.
Traces of the past can be found just about everywhere. Interesting evidence includes two menhir dating back to pre-Nuraghic times, the Domus de janas (better known as “fairy houses”), the Tombe dei Giganti (Giants tombs), a big Phoenician-Punic tophet (type of sacrificial cemetery) and an old Punic Necropolis.
The Roman Bridge, with two arches, situated at the town’s entrance, is very charming. In addition to its rich archaeological patrimony, the town offers visitors long, enchanting beaches that alternate with rocky bays. The sea is crystal-clear, abounding of life, fish and breathtaking seabeds.
The town offers visitors a spectacular unpolluted sea, rich in corals. It’s a vacation destination not to be missed!
