The Sardinia region

The population of San Teodoro’s territory goes back them to the ancient times and shows through the centuries a thread of almost uninterrupted continuity.

As it turns out at least from the state of the archaeological discoveries for the rest of Gallura‘s area, the first human takeovers of the San Teodoro’ s sour, favourites by the geographic position and climate factors and environments , they can be enrolled to the Neolithic one, and above all to the Eneolithic (2000 – 1500 a. C.).

Some hypogeum deposits, remembered by ours grandparents and incautiously destroyed the first decades of the nine hundred , shelters under cliff “cònchi” in zone Aresula testify the presence in the territory of ancient inhabitants .

Moreover, along the right river of the pond, to approximately half road between “lu tacconi “and “the foca manna “ some tips and splinters of obsidian were recovered to the end of the fifty years evidently used by the ancient inhabitants in the hunting .

Traces of the Nuragic period are present to Nuragheddu and to Ottiolu , today in Budoni’s common, that a time made part of the San Teodoro ‘s territory.

Just for the geographic position and on the base of some discoveries we were authorizes to think that the san Teodoro’ s area, extended on the sea to south of Olbia, has been attended in Phoenician (880 a.C.) and Punic period (VI sec a.C.)

In the 384 a.C. the Romans defeats by the Carthaginians, they undertook an assiduous work of pressure on the island in the attempt to replace itself to the old dominators.

In the 259 a.C. the consul Lucio Cornelio Scipione, disembarked with its legions near Olbia, defeated the Sardinians- Punics and started the roman penetration in Sardinia .

The enterprise was not easy for the courageous resistance of the inside’s tribes who contrasted with every means the roman occupation. In the 215 a.C. the consul Manlio Torquato routed to Cornus the army of Ampsicora, allied of the Carthaginians, but the guerrilla of the mountain populations still continued along until the 111 a. C. when Marco Cecilio Metello had reason of the last rioters and the Romanization of the island did not find more obstacles.

They came opened roads, ports, constructed monuments, aqueducts, cultivated the campaigns that became populous of rural small aggregates, “vici” and “villae”.

It goes back to roman age the inhabited centre of “coclearia”, that roses up in the present site of San Teodoro, between the necks of Citai, Lu Casteddu and the pond along the coast-road “karalibus – Olbiam per oram “, that it traced in great part the tracing of the present SS 125, east Sardinian .

The “city” of coclearia that had its port in the site today called Niùloni must have a sure importance in the imperial period, as they testify numerous discoveries of dishes, amphorae, grinders, coins, jewels, rests of constructions, flat tiles etc.

Important discoveries interest the feature of sea that bathes the territory of San Teodoro.

Not a lot far away from San Teodoro, in the island of Molara, was exiled Papa Ponziano (235 d.C)and the priest Ippolito so is not risked to think that also the next populations have been between first coming to contact with Christianity.

After the fall the roman empire of West also the provinces knew the barbaric invasions: in the 455 d. C. the Vandals, after to have put to iron and fire Rome, invade the Sardinia and they hold it under their ferocious dominion until the 553 d.C. when they came routes from the general Belisario, the island passes under the roman empire of East.

San Teodoro, or better the centre that then rose on this site one, as it demonstrates also the onomastics referable to the Christian church of East, it was inhabited centre Byzantine.

In the 1962, during the construction of a house near Sardinia way was found a tremisse of gold Byzantine of the emperor Foca.

In the medieval period the site in which the roman city rose and then the inhabited centre Byzantine was occupied by Offolle, important centre of the Orfili ‘s “Curatoria” , and perhaps same centre of the “Curatoria”, in the Gallura’ s Judicatus. .

Traces of this period are still found on the land and widely documented through the memory of ours ancestors, beyond that in the chorographia of the Fara (1595 d.C.) ,and later on in the route of “la Marmora”, and in the dictionary of “Casalis-Angius” etc, from Pais etc.

As it known the four Judicati are coevals of the maritime republics, and they were formed in Sardinia around to the IX century, when the separation from Byzantium is emphasized as a result of the Arabic incursions, cannot guarantee the protection of the island.

The Gallura’ s Judicatus which belongs San Teodoro (in that moment Offolle, Ovodè and then Oviddè) had for capital Civita, the present Olbia.

The Judicatus enters very soon in the Pisana orbit: in first of 1200 Elena of Gallura, in spite of the fair opposition of Pope Innocenzo III brides Lamberto Visconti; the son Baldo in the 1238 leaves the Judicatus to its cousin Giovanni Visconti, to which in the 1275 d.C. succeeds Nino “judge Nin kind” remembered by Dante.

To the dead of Nino in the 1296 d.C. the Judicatus comes confiscated from the common of Pisa.

To such period can be enrolled the road Pisana “uttaru pisanu” that from the neighbourhoods of Pedres’s castle carried to the San Teodoro ‘s plain, in the vicinities of pond passing in stratums of Almuttu Mount.

In the 1323 d.C. has beginning the Aragonese conquest of island that completes one in the 1400.

In the 1479, when Ferdinando the Catholic marries Isabella of Castiglia and unify one the several kingdoms of the Iberian peninsula, is born Spain, the Sardinia becomes Spanish; and the Gallura, dismembered, comes assigned to the several feudatories .

They are difficult years, disappear from Sardinian geography hundred of countries; afflicted from the recurrent scarcities, from the Saracen incursions, from the pestilences and the malaria, the Gallura is become depopulated.

The last news on Offòlle (Oviddè, San teodoro) go back to 1348 d.C. , then silence; the Sardinian historian Francesco Fara around to 1959 describes the territory of San Teodoro like one the desert land.

Traces of a return to the life will be had to the end of 1600, with the first rural takeovers of the tonnages: around to the church of campaign dedicated to San Teodoro and reconstructed, as it turns out from some papers conserved to the archives of Tempio ’s diocese, little before 1647, revives the first nucleus of Oviddè, for work of Tempio ‘s colonists originals and of near villages as well as of Corsica ‘s extraction.

In the 1720, as a result of the London ‘s treaty of the 1718, the Sardinia passes to Savoia between the 1837 and the 1839 comes abolished the feudal regimen, and Oviddè administratively assigned to Posada, it is also slowly, it grows and becomes the point of aggregation of immense sour one to south of Olbia.

In the first the nine hundred decades it claims the autonomy from Posada‘s common, but also in the 1959 manages to the detach itself.

In the 1927, meantime, in the fascist age, these land comes torn to Gallura and included in the within of the new province “littoria “of Nuoro.

Culture and traditions Culture and traditions, Ancient values and festivals in the land of Gallura

San Teodoro is a center of Gallura and in this role shares with pride its identity, language, customs, traditions and culture. These traces can synthesize themselves in a lifestyle tied to the values and symbolism of the country life in other times: the strong propensity toward hospitality, dignity, honor, love for the home, solidarity, and work.

Life near the sea had, at the time, conditioned the common feeling of the population in direct contact with the “stranger from the sea”... ignoring the searing impact on the shores of the conquered people throughout history, we can say that unlike social patterns typical of the Sardinian hinterland, a common trait of the people of Gallura coast is undoubtedly an openness and need for exchange and also an atavistic deference to their traditions.Gallurese is the dominant spoken dialect, so sweet and musical, radically different from the other Sardinian dialects and their more guttural sonority. On the other hand, Gallura conserves its own cultural type above all through the richness of its own customs, the use of the words in their most noble expressions, the poetry and the song, inspired by the simple life of the country, by the light and the strength of its unique nature.

Part of the patron saint festival of San Teodoro

The Gallurian community today, even if skeptical of the notion of progress, through rural and religious festivals celebrates the archaic rites tied to man's relationship with nature and its cycles, creating an occasion for the renewal of ties with an undiminished spirit of community aggregation. Visitors share in these events with lively participation and enthusiasm, in this way sharing in the authentic spirit of San Teodoro and its history.

The festival held dearest by the San Teodorians is without a doubt the festival of the patron saint San Teodoro that happens during the third week of June; however, two other festivals of patronage occur in other parts of the region: The festival of Saint Andrea in the community of Montipitrosu (to the north), celebrated during the first week of June, and the festival of Saint Antonio of Padua, at the the Community of Straula (to the south) during the second week of June. .

Another heartfelt occurrence is that of the 16th and 17th of January dedicated to Saint Antonio Abate the recluse, also known as Saint Antonio of the Fire and the Desert. The legend tells the story of the saint who, by his wits manages to take a flame from the fires of hell to give to mankind who has not yet mastered it.

The fire of Sant'Antonio

In Gallura the festival of Saint Antonio Abate is called lu fuculoni, or the great fire. This custom dictates that during the week preceding the event, the people are responsible for collecting a great pile of branches and shrubs which is then burned in the square to drive away trouble and misfortune in a continuous apotropaic rite.

The great fire is celebrated January 16th in Straula and January 17th in Suaredda, accompanied by local sweets and drinks. How can we forget the carnaval (lu carrasciáli) celebrated in the town square with a rich meal based on fai and laldu (beans and lard), wine and local sweets during lent?

The Gallurian identity and traditions of San Teodoro live and renew themselves unceasingly thanks to the prodigious interest of so many Teodorian citizens; The Institute of the Civilizations of the Sea (ICIMAR), the dance and cultural group Minifolk, and the Polyphonic Chorus of San Teodoro with their traditional song and dance.

Food and wine.

La zuppa gallurese e i pani tipici

Food always says something about us, and a land with great and ancient traditions cannot but have a similarly great culinary tradition. The great difficulty of the country life and the limited resources available have over the centuries changed the gastronomic habits of the Gallurians, inspiring a refinement of all dishes, even the most frugal.

Thus is created a simple cuisine made with few ingredients produced in the local countryside, like milk, meat, flour, honey, vegetables and little else, but combined with great skill. An example of this blissful capacity is the symbolic dish of Gallura, la suppa cuáta or Gallurian soup, a perfect synthesis of the tradition of a culinary commitment to primary ingredients like bread, cheese, and beef broth baked in the oven. Another typical dish is the mazza fríssa, an ice cream with an extremely delicate flavor obtained from bran and cream, delicious with honey. Gallura, land of the sea... the rock fish used in soup (lu ziminu di pesciu), lobster, grouper, sea bream, but also fried sea anenome (multigghjatá) and many other fish perfect for more conventional dishes. How can we fail to mention the immense resources of the San Teodoro lagoon? From this comes, thanks to a wise apparatus for the harvest, a quality seafood, the oyster (and even the roe)!

"Li ruiòli" and "li cucciulèddi milàti"

Sweets like li cucciuléddi miláti (dumplings with honey, almonds and walnuts), or li ruióli (ricotta or cottage cheese balls fried and dipped in warm honey) can only enrich any Gallurian table.

Pastries are particularly dear in Gallura: the Gallurians have always been bucchidulci, or gluttons for sweets, and it's not for nothing that every season and every holiday, religious or not, has its corresponding sweet. The typical Christmas sweets are the niuléddha, or “puff of smoke”, a large cookie made of chopped toasted almonds, pastry, honey and orange zest, or the frisjióli léti, spicy carnival fritters fried slowly in oil, and li papassíni, sweets for the Feast of All Saints. And yet all the different types of bread and fresh pasta are a living expression of a gastronomic culture which is never boring, where flavor is never sacrificed for simplicity.

The restaurateurs and the agritourism operators of San Teodoro offer indifferently the traditional dishes, both of meat and fish and dishes revisited from an international perspective in the quest for a varied tourism. Certainly, however, the tourist with an eye to the local gastronomic peculiarities will appreciate the riches and quality of Gallurian cuisine.

Goblet of Gallura Vermentino wine

Gallura is the fatherland of the famous Vermentino, a wine noted in the journals for it high quality, and it wouldn't be fair not to mention the myriad producers of local wine who, with a grape cultivated here with great passion, know how to make red and white wines of great dignity. The cellars of San Teodoro are always full of local wine!

Featured Gallurian culinary traditions include the festa dell'Agliola in May in which all the traditional food and wines are prepared by the chefs of all the restaurants in San Teodoro. The event, organized by the tourism office of San Teodoro and its highly competent and qualified personnel, retraces the steps of the traditions through the authentic ingredients of the dishes of the history of the pens... it's the food that ceases to be cuisine in order to become culture.

Climate, The variety of the seasons in a mild climate

The summer in San Teodoro countryside

The geographic position of San Teodoro, facing the Tyrrhenian Sea at an ideal latitude, is the major asset in a territory devoted to tourist development. The climate is mild even during the winter, with precipitation and minimum temperatures occurring generally in the months of January and February, and the summer heat is mitigated by the prevailing wind which is a cool, dry mistral from the north-east.

The springtime in San Teodoro, which begins in early March, is unmissable with its explosion of colors and aromas.

The winds.

A constant presence at San Teodoro, from different directions the winds blow all year long. The currents of air coming from the north west take the name Mistral, a cool wind that blows with violence, above all during the wintertime.

Frequently, and always during the winter, there are also the “Ponente” and “Libeccio”, winds from the south west.

There is also the Scirocco, a hot, initially dry wind originating in the African desert. Across the sea the Scirocco absorbs moisture, and by the time it reaches Sardinia it's hot, moist air. The Levant is less frequent, arriving on the east coast still cool and humid. Minor winds include the Tramontana and the Grecale, still quite fresh both in the summer and the winter. Only sporadically do cold, Arctic winds come to Sardinia.

The temperature.

The median annual temperature in most of the region is between 57 and 68 degrees fahrenheit. It is decisively warmer during the summer, with a median temperature of 86 degrees fahrenheit, but in the high plains in the interior it can reach 104 degrees. During the bella stagione or “beautiful season”, that is, the summer, the humidity can be particularly stifling, but in general the sea provides a nice mitigating influence, even if in the mountains it descends below zero. During the spring, which corresponds to the months of March, April and May, median temperatures are around 55 to 57 degrees Fahrenheit, with momentary and sporadic disturbance provoked by the eruptions of cold air.

The temperature of the water:

The water temperature varies from a minimum of 58 degrees Fahrenheit in January to a maximum of 75 degrees in August.

Days of sunshine:

There are 300 sunny days per year, from May to October.

San Teodoro

The territory

The territory, we give you mountains and the sea Tavolara isle seen from San Teodoro

A place on the level coast of eastern Sardinia, but with beautiful mountains like Mt. Nieddu (3200 ft.) at its shoulders, San Teodoro is a cultural and political part of the subregion of Gallura, land abounding in granite and the aromas of the splashes of the Mediterranean sea.

The territory of San Teodoro extends for about 60 square miles, distributed in hilly and mountainous zones, wetlands along the coast like the grand lagoon of San Teodoro and a band toward the alluvial plain that descends to 23 miles of rugged coastline and spellbinding cliffs and beaches.

The presence of a unique and important waterway, the San Teodoro River, mentioned by the researcher and scholar of the order of the Piarists Father Vittorio Angius in his “Dictionary” (from the late 1720's), is dry during the summer along with its small tributaries and does not significantly affect the lives of the Teodorians, but during the rainy season, which occurs in the first months of the year, it regains the vigor of all its power rushing toward the lagoon and the sea.

Thanks to the mild climate of the sweet winters and to exposure to the marine environment, the landscape is predominantly coloured by the nuances of low Mediterranean plants including maquis and the like: arbutus, myrtle spurge, mastic, broom, rock rose, but also more familiar plants like the olive, juniper, the alder and oak that once thickened ridges and broad valleys of the granite massif of Mount Nieddu.

The Beaches:

Cala Brandinchi :

A dream to 360° : the transparent and crystalline waters framed from the Tavolara’ s island and the whitest beach, the uncontaminated and fascinating lagoon whose natural- artistic greatness comes completed from dunes , the pine forest, sure shelter in the warm summer days and the cliffs turned out of the nature’ s fanciful job.

Capo Coda Cavallo:

Zone of border between Olbia and San Teodoro that, from the high of its position, it offers the view of a panorama “infinitely” where the waters encircle Molara and Molarotto , they insinuate themselves between the coasts, some visible and visited, others hidden and uncontaminated for a perturbing show.

Marina di Lu Impostu :

Its beauty is the result of the union between an indescribable sea and a pond that characterizes the landscape to its shoulders…to divide them only a thin sand strip, seated on which can be admired the wonderful Tavolara’ s massive…that it goes to complete this natural frame.

Laguna:

An independent world where the silence is broken from flamingo’s shout and from their rose march that breaks the blue’s sky. A natural habitat of approximately 300 hectares of inner waters with peculiar characteristics in which is important to cite beyond the flamingos, other migratory birds and good amounts of molluscs and crustacean

PROTECTED MARINE PARK:

The Tavolara ‘s marine park has been instituted with decree of the ministry of the atmosphere of the 22/09/1997 ,and has been subdivided in three zones with various limitations for navigation and the fishing.

One extends for beyond 4400 hectares from Capo Ceraso , to south of Olbia, until Tip Isuledda , to south of SanTeodoro.

Between these extremes points, in a succession continuous of panoramas and landscapes of charming beauty , come loose all a corollary of small beaches ,of creeks inviting and promontories .

The marine park comprises the islands of Tavolara , Molara, Proratora, the island Ruja and , more far away , Molarotto.

It follows therefore the splendid San Teodoro’s beach , “la Cinta” , with the its whitest sand ,the long row of dunes and , to the shoulders ,the lagoon with the fish pool, famous and renowned for its production of sea basses , gilt head and mullet roe.

The San Teodoro’s lagoon one extends from north to south, from Punta Sabbatino to Lu Rattali , and it is visible covering the state road 125.

The wider part of the lagoon measure km 3,350 , its surface is of 2,30 km .the depth of its waters oscillates between mt 0,70 and mt 2,50.

San Teodoro is encircled from nearly three hundred hectares of inner waters ,in the Middle Age used for the

production of salt ,and in which are found good amounts of sea basses and gilthead, with breams, soles ,eels and grey mullet, therefore molluscs and Crustacea.

In years 50 the canes field and also other hectares of vegetation for the reclamation of the pond were destroyed. The lagoon’s affluence are Rio Filicagliju and Rio San Teodoro.

In the lagoon are possible also admire some species of migratory birds which real germanium, coots , the Sterna Albifrons ,Ardea purpurea, the Egretta Garzetta, seagulls and cormorants, Ardea cinerea.

Thanks to the favourable climate and the abundance in fish of its waters ,in winter period stay in the lagoon the flamingos rose , whose permanence lasts by now from many years.

TAVOLARA MARINE PARK:

The two islands are the tips of relief of the marine park. Famous for a fascination tangible and their strong contrast. In fact Molara rises imposing from the sea with its calcareous cliffs, the high falsie and the caves. Molara instead has a shape more rounded et circular, hilly zone extremely rich of vegetation

THE FAUNA:

The wild fauna teodorina accommodates some species present only in our island, therefore an only natural treasure.. source of the love and the consciousness that the Sardinians try for their earth and of the respect that carry to her. In this earth predominate the wild boar, the vixen, the marmot, the real eagle and the wild cat.
