Tharros is an archaeological site in Sardinia brimming with centuries of history.
Founded in the eighth century BC by the Phoenicians, Tharros would be inhabited by the Carthaginians and the Romans, leaving behind a series of ancient structures, especially its two standing Corinthian columns.
Among the other highlights of the ruins at Tharros are the remains of the Carthaginian tophet – a sacred space sometimes used for burials – as well as the remains of the thermal baths and the foundations of temples, houses and shops.
Later abandoned due to Saracen raids, Tharros is one of Sardinia’s best ancient sites.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Tharros is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
