.📍Tharros è il sito di una cittadina punico-romana fondata nel VIII secolo a C dai fenici sul luogo di un insediamento dell'Età del Bronzo. Le rovine della città sono ubicate sulla penisola di Capo San Marco sul Golfo di Oristano. Si possono ammirare i resti delle fondamenta dei templi, terme romane, il Castellum Acquae, un tofet fenicio-punico e un quartiere dove lavoravano gli artigiani. La città divenne capitale del Giudicato di Arborea fino al suo abbandono nel 1070 d C, a causa delle frequenti incursioni arabe, a favore dell'odierna Oristano.

⭕️Columns of Tempio Tetrastilo & a Punic Terracotta Statuette, from the archaeological site of Tharros, Golfo di Oristano, Cabras and the Archaeological Museum in Cagliari, Sardinia
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ⓒ Peter Callas 2018. All Rights Reserved.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks to recent archaeological findings in the Mistras Lagoon in the area of Tharros off the southern shore of the Capo di San Marco, it has been determined that the Phoenician port, which had been until recently thought of as the first settlement here, was built on a previous Nuragic settlement which existed since the Bronze Age (1900-730 BCE).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tharros was therefore continuously inhabited, first by the Sardinian Nuragic civilisation, then by the Phoenicians, the Carthaginian Punics and the Romans and Byzantines, from well before the 8th century BCE until its abandonment in the 10th century CE. The changes in the occupants though were, of course, not always peaceful. The Christian Diocese of Tharros was established around the year 400, building the church of San Giovanni di Sinis. During the post-Byzantine era the town was the capital of the medieval Giudicato of Arborea until 1070 when it was relocated further inland to Oristano under constant pressure from Saracen raiders. The town was effectively abandoned at this time or shortly thereafter. Sadly, the site was then used for centuries as a quarry.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The area is now an open-air museum with some still-active excavation sites. The Roman-era Tempio Tetrastilo is most prominently marked by its two solitary standing columns. These are, of course, reconstructions, though the Corinthian capital balanced on the top of one is authentic.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most of the artifacts found in Tharros are housed in the Archaeological Museum at Cagliari, along with the Antiquarium Arborense in Oristano, the Archaeological Museum in the nearby town of Cabras and in the British Museum, London.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks to recent archaeological findings in the Mistras Lagoon in the area of Tharros off the southern shore of the Capo di San Marco, it has been determined that the Phoenician port, which had been until recently thought of as the first settlement here, was built on a previous Nuragic settlement which existed since the Bronze Age (1900-730 BCE).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tharros was therefore continuously inhabited, first by the Sardinian Nuragic civilisation, then by the Phoenicians, the Carthaginian Punics and the Romans and Byzantines, from well before the 8th century BCE until its abandonment in the 10th century CE. The Christian Diocese of Tharros was established around the year 400, building the church of San Giovanni di Sinis. During the post-Byzantine era the town was the capital of the medieval Giudicato of Arborea until 1070 when it was relocated further inland to Oristano under constant pressure from Saracen raiders. The town was effectively abandoned at this time or shortly thereafter. Sadly, the site was then used for centuries as a quarry.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The area is now an open-air museum with some still-active excavation sites. The Roman-era Tempio Tetrastilo is most prominently marked by its two solitary standing columns. These are, of course, reconstructions, though the Corinthian capital balanced on the top of one is authentic.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most of the artifacts found in Tharros are housed in the Archaeological Museum at Cagliari, along with the Antiquarium Arborense in Oristano, the Archaeological Museum in the nearby town of Cabras and in the British Museum, London.

The towers of San Giovanni, Torre Vecchia (or San Marco) and the Sevo (Turr'e Seu) were built between the 16th and 17th centuries, by order of Spanish authorities, along the coast of the Sinis di Cabras and the Capo di San Marco, at the base of which stands the Byzantine church of San Giovanni di Sinis.

Questo è un altro lunedì di sabato sera
quindi per favore puoi lasciarmi solo
mi sento come un lupo quando è luna piena
guardo la tempesta che distrugge il molo
hai visto quanto è brutto il mare d’inverno
fortuna che c'ho sempre gli occhiali da sole
Non voglio compagnia neanche all'inferno 🥀 •

The towers of San Giovanni, Torre Vecchia (or San Marco) and the Sevo (Turr'e Seu) were built between the 16th and 17th centuries, by order of Spanish authorities, along the coast of the Sinis di Cabras and the Capo di San Marco, at the base of which stands the Byzantine church of San Giovanni di Sinis. Like other Sardinian coastal towers, they were built to protect local populations from raids by Arab and Berber pirates coming from North Africa and Andalucía on the Iberian peninsula.

The tower of S. Giovanni, so named for its proximity to the church of San Giovanni, was built on the top of the hill overlooking the archaeological area of Tharros.
