San Salvatore is a village that was chosen in the past as a perfect location for western movies. Small one floor houses and a wide square. The village looks abandoned even if there are inhabitants.

A fishing village, used as a movie set for a Western movie, has now become a tourist resort just a short walk from the famous and beautiful Is Arutas beach.

This strange, almost deserted, town was apparently created for a cowboy film made in the 1960s. The single-story houses are unoccupied except for an annual festival in the incorporated church, when pilgrims flock to the location and are no doubt happy to endure the primitive...More

around the church of San Salvatore you wander in a western style entourage, little pilgrimshouses, the main attraction however is the little church and not even the church itself, but the crypt: you step down back in time, through a hatch, into a Roman 'temple',...More
