(in 31 Km) Before returning to Castelsardo we going for a swim at Santa Teresa Gallura. This village is located on a small promontory that falls over Bocca Bonifacio, the strait between Corsica and Sardinia. On the promontory stands Longosardo tower, built in the sixteenth century by order of King Philip II of Spain. When in 1720 the island passed to the Savoy, a village was created around the fortress, which in 1808 would be named Santa Teresa in honor of the woman of Vittorio Emanuele I.
