Sant’Antioco is the fourth largest island in Italy and is a small universe of History, Nature, Geology. Not everyone knows that Sulcis is after the ancient name of the city of Sant’Antioco, Sulkì, which now indicates the whole area of South West Sardinia. It is, in fact, on this island, united for centuries by an isthmus to the Sardinian land, that one of the first cities in Italy originated.
Rich in history, with the most consistent prehistoric and Nuragic settlements in Southern Sardinia, Sant’Antioco is a small continent to be visited to understand better the whole Sardinia.
