On request, staff at the Pausania Inn can organise transfers and assist you closely in booking boat trips and excursions in Northern Sardinia.
Here are some activities particularly appreciated and suggested by our staff:
Visit to Tempio Pausania, a charming and characteristic town, which has always been the cradle of Gallura culture. The historic centre of Tempio Pausania is made up of exposed granite buildings, often adorned with wrought iron balconies. The streets are paved and there are numerous unmissable views: the Cathedral of San Pietro, the Oratory of the Rosary and the Church of Santa Croce; the house of Nino Visconti, the last judge of the Giudicato di Gallura, quoted by Dante in the VIII song of Purgatory; via Mannu, known as “via dei nobili” since the past because it housed the Spanish nobility; the Teatro del Carmine (1929) and the adjacent cloister of the Piarists (1650). In Via Roma, a short distance from the cathedral, admire the cork creations of the designer Anna Grindi, who in 1999 patented the “Suberis” fabric.
Visit the old train station from the 1930s, with the waiting room adorned with paintings by Giuseppe Biasi. We recommend a walk to the Fonte Nuova path, from where, through the San Lorenzo pinewood, you will arrive at the Fonti di Rinaggiu.
• Visit to the archaeological site of Nuraghe Majori, 500 metres from the hotel.
