Excursions to Tempio Pausania

The Pausania Inn staff can organize transfers on request and assist you in booking boat trips and excursions throughout Northern Sardinia.
Here are some suggested and particularly appreciated activities:
Visit to Tempio Pausania, a charming and characteristic town, which has always been the cradle of Gallura culture. The historic centre, composed of exposed granite buildings, often adorned with wrought iron balconies overlooking paved streets, offers many beautiful 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 of Gallura, quoted by Dante in the VIII canto of Purgatory; via Mannu, known as “via dei nobili” since the past because it housed the Spanish nobility; the theatre of 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; the interesting late nineteenth century workshop is closed to the public, but ask the staff to see it. We recommend a walk to the Viale Nuova, from which, through the pine forest of San Lorenzo, you will arrive at the Fonti di Rinaggiu.
