The name must be dedicated to Maria Teresa d'Austria, wife of Vittorio Emanuele I, King of Sardinia, as the Queen expressed the desire to dedicate the town to Santa Teresa for which she gave the construction of the church to the parish priest Don Balata.
Today, Santa Teresa di Gallura, the tourist may see order to the disposition of the roads, admire the tower of Longone, the tranquil bay of the port, the tormented cliffs of Municca, the famous rocks of the general, and find it impossible not to remain fascinated.
In 1803 the place returned to life thanks to a Piedmontese official, Magnon, who, other than the drawing up of the project of constructing the town also pacified the rival families.
