An early Christian church from the 6th century AD, expanded in Byzantine times (XI century AD) according to the same architectural style (see photos).

While in Sinis this is a great stop; pause, relax and feel the world disappear for a while. Sounds a bit new agey, but it really is a modest and yet beautiful old church.

I believe this lovely little church dates back to the 6th century. It is well worth a visit if you are visiting Tharros.

The church of San Giovanni is a magnificent example of 11th century design. Inside the simplicity adds to its charm, with a small altar and very interesting wooden tabernacle. Well worth a visit.

This Paleochristian era church is so old! It feels like the stones carry centuries of spiritual energy with its simple interior, cool and damp atmosphere. A quick stop and free.
