Newly built elegant apartment, overlooking the central Piazza Sella, the beating heart of city life, immersed in the shopping streets and natural center of the city of Iglesias.
The apartment consists of an elegant open space living room with a television, a double bedroom with its bathroom, a second bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with two single beds, a secondary bathroom with a shower. The kitchen is complete with all appliances and all rooms are air-conditioned. There is also the possibility to use the private parking space.
The historical center of Iglesias, rich in history and traditions, offers tourists the opportunity to visit numerous monuments, churches, archives, naturalistic sites and industrial archeology unique in the world: the Cathedral of Santa Chiara (about 1280), the Villa di Chiesa, the Salvaterra Castle and the Pisan Walls, the natural monument of the Pan di Zucchero and the mining gallery of Porto Flavia, the Santa Barbara cave and the state forest of the Marganai are just a few examples. Sulcis-Iglesiente, located in the South-Western part of Sardinia, has always been a strategic area for the extraction of minerals (lead and zinc) among the most sought-after and precious in the ancient, modern and contemporary world. The Phoenicians before and the Carthaginians then discovered the rich mineral deposits present in the subsoil; exploitation that continued in the Pisan era until the middle of 1900. Today, these deposits constitute a significant testimony of industrial archeology so as to be included in the Unesco's Tentative List. The mining gallery of Porto Flavia (Masua), the Henry gallery (Buggerru) and the Laveria Lamarmora (Nebida) are very important.
Iglesias is a town of about 28,000 inhabitants, the city is a few kilometers from the sea (Middle Beach, Port Straw etc.), Both from the mountains (Marganai, Linas and Arcuentu). The visitor will find himself immersed in a visual and olfactory journey of extraordinary beauty, which will allow him to pass from the mountains to the sea, from medieval traditions to the mining history of the late nineteenth century, feeling an integral part of our rich past.
Sea and nature.
Wild and uncontaminated landscapes characterize this Sardinian territory, from the Sulcis Natural Park to the famous Pan di Zucchero (Masua) near Iglesias, from the pinewood and the dunes of Porto Pino to the Gulf of Palmas, from the salt pans of Sant'Antioco to the Island of San Pietro, called "green island" due to its luxuriant nature.
Lovers of the sea and nature can take a swim, or simply a walk, in the Gulf of Gonnesa, with its crystal clear waters or the beautiful beach of Portixeddu, a favorite destination for surfers. In fact, there are many water sports that can be practiced in Sulcis: kitesurfing, windsurfing, diving, sailing. Frequent activities in the area, rich in winds.
But it is above all the hinterland that tells the ancient and noble past that makes this region special.
The numerous archaeological sites (Nuragics, Phoenicians, Romans and Byzantines) make the Sulcis Iglesiente a true paradise for history buffs. For example, in Seruci (Gonnesa) and Carbonia there are two very important nuraghic villages. In Villaperuccio, Montessu, is located the most important necropolis in domus de janas - the so-called "fairy houses" or "witches" - southern Sardinia: these are ancient tombs, carved into the rock, which date back to the Late Neolithic. Many sites collect evidence of Phoenician and Punic settlements in the region, such as the Phoenician fortress of Pani Loriga near Santadi and, above all, the city of Sant'Ant Antioco, formerly Sulky, which also collects numerous artifacts from later eras.
Not far from Carbonia we will find the archaeological site of Monte Sirai, where, on an ancient nuragic settlement, a fortified Phoenician center was built, later also used by the Romans. Monte Sirai is, in fact, a veritable open-air archaeological museum, divided into different itineraries. Among the other noteworthy places, the archaeological area of Antas (Fluminimaggiore), finally, hosts numerous archaeological evidences including the majestic Punic-Roman Temple dedicated to the Sardinian god "Sardus Pater Babai".
Between a visit to a Carthaginian temple, a walk in a mining park, a boat ride and a swim at the sea, visitors can taste the gastronomic delicacies of the region, such as tuna, oil, pecorino, artichoke and honey, accompanied by a good glass of Carignano DOC del Sulcis. Lovers of crafts will not want to leave, without having brought with them at least a sample of the beautiful tapestries, rugs, jewelry and knives that a thousand-year tradition of spinning fabrics and metalworking can produce with great skill.
