San Salvatore is a village that was chosen in the past as a perfect location for western movies. Small one floor houses and a wide square. The village looks abandoned even if there are inhabitants.

A fishing village, used as a movie set for a Western movie, has now become a tourist resort just a short walk from the famous and beautiful Is Arutas beach.

If you happen to be in this area, this place is worth the visit. It will take you 15 minutes max. to see the whole place. This little, looks like abandoned (except cats), village looks like from a western movie. Small houses, one church, and...More

The layout of this tiny village is so community based. The doorways into each house are very low, and I was told this is because Sardinians are small in stature.

Abandoned Spanish style village - you could be in rural Cuba! Used for cowboy films in the past - zero facilities - just stroll around and let your imagination take over! Ancient crypt in church worth a visit if it happens to be open...

This strange, almost deserted, town was apparently created for a cowboy film made in the 1960s. The single-story houses are unoccupied except for an annual festival in the incorporated church, when pilgrims flock to the location and are no doubt happy to endure the primitive...More

Stayed in the Agritourismo Sinis which is two minutes away from San Salvatore. An amazing experience. All the food, wine and liqueurs are made on site and there is a menagerie with donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks and two ostriches. The staff are all members of...More

Here you find the access to the archeological site of Tharros, one of the most important in Sardinia. Also the little church in the village is worth a visit (a simple beauty). The only reason why I do not give full grade is because of...More

around the church of San Salvatore you wander in a western style entourage, little pilgrimshouses, the main attraction however is the little church and not even the church itself, but the crypt: you step down back in time, through a hatch, into a Roman 'temple',...More

Hi - I would very much doubt it - the best you could do maybe would be a bus to Oristano and then a taxi to San Salvatore. By far the easiest and probably cheaper option would be to hire a car/people carrier for the... More
