Sights and attractions

  • St Paul's Church - the main Catholic church in Olbia boasts a medieval appearance, but it's not clear exactly what year it's from. It impresses with its bell tower and its dome with a rainbow roof
  • Remains of a Roman aqueduct - several arches of the aqueduct that fed water into the town have been preserved since the turn of the century (map of 2 sites on en.mapy.cz)
