This is Olbia's main attraction, a medieval church in Pisan-Roman style. San Simplicio was built from the late 11th to the mid-12th century on a hill outside the city walls, which was previously a Punic cemetery. The interior of the three-aisled basilica is divided by columns and pilasters with Lombard granite capitals. Milestones of the old Roman road are erected on the walls. The Festa di San Simplicio, Olbia's largest festival, is celebrated here for three days in mid-May. Make sure to join the celebration during your catamaran charter in Olbia.

Located on the outskirts of Arzachena, the Nuraghe Albucciu is built on a granite rock that gives it its appearance and makes it unique.

This funerary monument is the largest Nuragic Giants' graves in Sardinia and is one of the latest megalithic complexes in Europe.
