The archaeological site of Forum Traiani at Fordongianus is situated on the border of the river Tirso. Here a warm water source springs from the volcanic rock and this has been used by the romans to build their baths. Originally the name of the town was Acquae Hypsitanae until under emperor Trajan it was promoted to Forum. The town became an important military center in the late-roman and byzantine period to keep control of inland Sardinia. Just outside Fordongianus as it came to be called in modern times, lies the site of the church of one of the early christian martyrs San Lussorio.
