I booked a 2 night break in the city and was recommended to visit this church by the hotel staff. It's easy to walk to and has a very interesting history. Well worth a visit

Lovely church in Olbia that strikes with its simplicity hence the name of San Simplicio. Stunning architecture with features I've never seen before! Free to visit!

We went in august and not many people visit this place. This old building is beautiful from outside and inside is just simply.

Visiting on MV Arcadia for a visit to Olbia and found this gem. What a lovely place. Lucky enough to come when a wedding was on.
