Iglesias: historic quarters and aperitif

The jewel of the South West, just 40 minutes from Cagliari, was one of Europe's most important mining centres. The combination of its industrial, environmental and architectural heritage makes it unique. The fortified medieval walls and the Salvaterra Castle tell us of the Pisan and Spanish past. But it is the numerous churches that are the real protagonists: their massive presence has contributed over time to the current name of Villa di Chiesa.

We will visit the historical centre of Iglesias and strolling through the streets and squares overlooked by elegant palaces, we will discover the places that hold the soul and vocation of the Middle Ages and the history of its confraternities that still hand down the customs and traditions of the time. Dulcis in fundo a visit to Salvaterra Castle will surprise you. Witness to Sardinian battles and resistance, the castle is now home to a rare collection of ancient tortures inspired by the Inquisition period and built entirely by hand by a local master-at-arms.

The jewel in the crown of our tour will be an aperitif in one of Iglesiente’s most popular venues.

The itinerary lasts approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes and includes: guided tour through the historical centre of Iglesias, entrance and tour of the Salvaterra Castle and exhibition of medieval tortures, aperitif at one most popular local venue.
