Sant'Antioco (CI)

In antiquity Sant'Antioco was known under the name of Sulky, originally a phoenician tradepost founded in the eighth century BC near a Bronze Age complex nuraghe. In the town the remains are visible of the punic necropolis, later turned into early christian catacombs under the church of Sant'Antioco. There is an important archaeological museum next to the phoenician-punic open air sanctuary called tophet. In the Middle Ages the name of the town was changed to Sant'Antioco, the early christian martyr. Each year festivities and a procession are held in honour of the saint.
