Absolutely a lot of tourist attractions and things to see in San Teodoro: not only with regard to the typical and characteristic tour in the country and among its shops, its alleys and its inhabitants, but also as regards the real attractions that characterize this place. The town develops around the Church of San Teodoro di Amasea, built in the 18th century, is characterized by the traditional architecture of the lower Gallura and offers tourists first-class accommodation facilities, numerous tourist services and a lively nightlife including a famous market. Sardinian handicraft that animates the streets of the center in the evening. In the center of San Teodoro there is also a work by Luigi Castiglioni, avant-garde illustrator and painter, a mural depicting a fantastic seascape with the colors of the coasts and seabed in the surroundings.
The historic center of San Teodoro has very ancient origins and has preserved its original nineteenth-century appearance. Tourists can stroll through narrow streets full of craft shops and clothes shops or relax in the numerous bars, pubs or outdoor venues here.
Finally, don’t miss the famous evening market in the town, with the presence of numerous artisans and artists, and Piazza Gallura, the fulcrum of the social life of San Teodoro.
Enjoy a stroll downtown, among shops, stalls and outdoor venues. But it does not end here, because in the evening the center is transformed and emerges in all its splendor and fun.
San Teodoro was born and developed mainly around the parish church, built in the eighteenth century, in honor of the Holy Martyr Teodoro di Amasea. The center and the square Gallura, in front of the church, have been and remain the point of reference for our community throughout the year. Then in spring everything becomes more magical, with the reopening of shops, seasonal activities and the arrival of summer. The city center has essentially maintained the appearance of the past and still preserves historical features of Gallura identity. Examples are the buildings with wrought-iron lunettes above the doors, the typical balconies and the granite elements or the gabled roof.
First ‘mandatory’ visit is at the tourist office in Piazza Mediterraneo, the heart of hospitality of San Teodoro. The friends and friends of the office will be able to advise you on what to visit and discover to spend your holiday in the best way and do not forget to take the very useful map of San Teodoro.
The parish church which exhibits the coat of arms of Pope Pius XI on the façade worth a visit. In the early 1950s the ancient church was destroyed to make room for the new church completed in 1957, as you can see it today. The interior furnishings are instead the work of the restructuring of the 70s. Not far from the church you will find the Mural by Luigi Castiglioni, a well-known illustrator and avant-garde painter known in Europe and the United States. Castiglioni donated his mural painting to the community of San Teodoro some thirty years ago, inspired by the nuances and colors of our coasts and by the brilliant and luminous seabed. Hence the representation of the darting fish in the large frescoed wall. Today there is talk of a complete restoration project of the work, which would give full force to the fantastic seascape imagined by our never forgotten author and friend of San Teodoro.
Discreetly inserted among these ‘monuments’, in the morning or early afternoon, you will be lucky enough to meet another pillar of the square: the painter Salvatore Spano. With his spatula he will be able to enchant you and transmit you the love he has for this beautiful area that he has been painting and telling for thirty years.
You can then continue your walk through the shops, bars, outdoor restaurants and, on Friday mornings, visit the local market. If you can’t resist the call of the sea, you can pay a visit to La Cinta beach which is only 700 meters away.
