The geographical position of Santa Teresa di Gallura, today happy under the flag of tourism, which has had its history characterised by periods of prosperity alternating with that of periods of total destruction, which has cancelled its name for centuries. Beginning in the Phoenician period as a tranquil landing-place in a tract of coast tormented by winds and unsafe, it became occupied by the Romans who called it "Lungonis" by way of a port that is situated along a small bay.
They used the granite caves for the columns of the Pantheon, but very quickly there arrived years of famine and pestilence, that, jointly with the assaults of the Saracens, made this region dangerous and uninhabitable. Arriving in the middle of the XIV century, a period in which Eleonora d'Arborea built the castle of Longonsardo.
Even the period of prosperity that followed was not destined to last very long with the arrival of the Aragons, who, not loved by the population, went away destroying everything behind them.
