Castelsardo & Tempio Pausania From Olbia - Costa Smeralda

Castelsardo is a medieval fortress surrounded by nature and steeped in history, religious traditions and ancient crafts. It sits perched on promontory in Anglona, in the center of the Asinara Gulf in north-western Sardinia. It was already an impenetrable centuries-old fortress protected by thick walls and 17 towers, until the advent of modern weaponry. The original nucleus of Castelsardo grew up around the castle of the Dorias, which tradition dates to 1102,

    In the heart of the Gallura, amidst impressive granite rocks, wild "macchia", cork and Holm oaks, lies TEMPLE PAUSANIA. On a first visit to the city, the contrast between the loveliness of the landscape and the austerity of the granite buildings is striking. TEMPIO PAUSANIA was founded by the Romans, though the most ancient settlements dates back to Nuraghi and pre-Nuraghi times (3000 B.C. to 1600 B.C.), with well-preserved examples including the Nuraghi Majori. The village is known for its superb chestnuts and vermentino wines, its mineral springs, and its pleasant climate.

    CASTELSARDO is a picturesque historic town on the northern coast of Sardinia. The old town, fortified with a castle, is an interesting and atmospheric place to visit. There are attractive restaurants in historic lanes, and shops selling all kinds of Sardinian handicrafts and other souvenirs. CASTELSARDO's castle, the Castle of the Doria, houses the Museo dell'Intreccio del Mediterraneo, a museum of basketball-weaving, an important local handicraft. From the castle to the storage area.
