Sardinia, a unique experience
Abbasanta

Abbasanta

Abbasanta sits on a lava plateau, which arose from the lava flow of the Montiferru volcano, where the roads to Olbia, Cagliari, Oristano and Alghero cross. The village is built around the Santa Christina Church. The area is filled with archaeological findings, such as the dolmen and Giants’ Tombs. The nearby nuraghe Losa is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The name of the village, meaning “holy water” in Sardinian, refers to the well used by the Romans that is located along the road to Fordongianus. On the shores of the Tirso River near Fordongianus the Roman warm water baths are still visible.
