THARROS
Archeology Thaorros SardiniaThis Ancient city, founded by Phoenicians (XI-VIII century B. C.), is situated on the promontory that, from Sinis stretches out southward, arriving to Capo San Marco. Tharros, like Corinth, has been built between two seas. Phoenicians used to built their cities on small tapering peninsula, where their boats will have been well protected with every kind of wind. Nowadays, Tharros is a very interesting archaeological area and there are excavates since 1956.
 
Archeology Thaorros SardiniaIn the northern part there is a quadrangular building that acted as tank for the aqueduct and supplied a public font. Going on towards the main street you will arrive on an arena delimited by an embankment: it is the amphitheatre that occupies a part of the Tophet area, an ancient sanctuary built on the ruins of a nuragic village. A bit further on the square towers and some remains of the fortification are evident. The sandstone walls, dating back to the Carthaginian Age, have been replaced by the Roman wall.
 
Tharros SardiniaThe street ends just in front of the Thermal Baths (II century B. C.) that the Christian of the V century utilised to built a basilica where a baptistery with an hexagonal font stands. On the right we find the remains of a temple with four columns, dating back to 50 B. C.. Going on you will find the forum of Tharros, a small trapezium square where all the public life of the city was set. All the beaches of this area are perfect for surf lovers, thanks to the long waves that characterise this part of the coast.
