something you do not see very often, an early christian church dated back to 6/9 century in a beautiful old village square, one of my favorite places in sardegna.

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.

We stumbled upon this 6th century church while going to Tharros (ancient Roman ruins just metres away). The car park is just before the church, and we stopped in as the door was open. The church is an unusual shape with a domed roof. Inside,...More

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.
