Tempio Pausania

The Railstation, Tempio Pusania

Tempio Pausania lies in the heart of Gallura, at the foot of Monte Limbara. It is a charming town, famous for its cork products and granite stone production. The countryside has several Nuraghic-period remains, including the nuraghes of Monti Pinna, Tanca Manna Izzana, Culbinu, Agnu and Majori, where several flint and obsidian objects have been found. The town’s distinguishing feature are its old granite houses, similar to those found in towns in southern Corsica. This is famous wine-growing land, producing some outstanding wines such as Vermentino and Moscato, with a flourishing export market. The area is known for the Rinaggiu springs, at the foot of Monte Limbara. Their light mineral water has excellent curative properties. Tempio Pausania also has thermal springs.

 

A charming historical landmark is the 18th country church of San Lorenzo, standing on the hill of the same name. If you step inside you’ll see a statue of the Saint on the gridiron. The Saint’s festival is held on 10 August.
In town, visit the interesting Historical Museum of Cork Working, with its interesting collection of artisan tools and industrial machinery for working this multifaceted natural material. You can also stop at the Museum Templense, which houses an interesting collection of ancient sacred art, including silver artefacts and paintings from the cathedral of San Pietro Apostolo. Finally, you can visit on appointment the Private Bird Collection of General Francesco Stazza.
