WHO WE ARE

The port of Santa Teresa is a part of the soul of the village, a place of intense trade and cultural exchanges, the border point – in Sardinia – closest to other lands.

The characteristic fjord of elongated shape is the origin of the ancient name Longonis, and Lungoni is still today the Sardinian name of this dynamic centre at the extreme north of the island.

Lungoni – Santa Teresa has very ancient origins, its existence is already documented in the Roman Age and the archaeological evidences of the Nuragic age are impressive. The importance of its port is demonstrated by the mighty monuments which preserve the banks: eastward the medieval castle, westward the Spanish tower.

Today the structure, managed by Silene Multiservizi, is a modern and efficient reality, in continuous relationship with the surrounding territory and able to offer numerous services in the spirit of warm welcome and care of travellers.

ACTIVITIES

On the internal port quays, Café du Port and Anfiteatro, overlook the commercial activities and handicrafts. In addition to restaurants, bars and shops there is a wellness centre with an indoor pool fed by a waterfall that rises from a cave. In summer Chiostro del Porto turns in a small theatre that animates the evenings with important cultural events.
