Santa Teresa di Gallura

A port in northern Sardinia, which bears beautiful «feminine» name is located near strait of Bonifacio, where meet the waters of Mediterranean Sea (on the West) and Tyrrhenian sea (on the East). Intensive sea currents and strong winds make the strait an ideal venue for fantastically beautiful regattas, that’s why every year near the shore of Santa Teresa di Gallura are organized spectacular contests of snow-white beautiful yachts. The route of regatta itself runs from Italian shores through Sardinia to famous Corsica. The resort would have not appeared, if ambitious duke of Savoy Victor Emmanuel I had not been desired in 1808  to immortalize the name of his beloved spouse Maria-Theresa, naming the resort area after her. Today an unusual statue of saint Theresa, made in futuristic style is regarded as the town’s landmark.
