History of the port
There was a human presence in this area as far back as 4000 B.C., as testified by archaeological remains found near the centre of the town.
In the period during which Sardinia was under Roman dominion, there were two centres on Sardinia: Tibula and Longonis.
The latter was located to the left of the present-day port and was established as a small fishing village; the name seems to due to the long coastline on which it stood, the structure of which offered natural shelter for boats.
The Romans exploited this area for its granite, which, one processed, was transported to Rome for building monuments and villas.
When the Pisans arrived in the medieval period and era of the Maritime Republics, the town of Longobardo was established, which served as a strategic location facing Corsica, which was under the dominion of the Pisans at the time.
In the 8th and 9th centuries, Santa Teresa di Gallura became one of the four ports from which goods could arrive and depart, along with Alghero, Porto Torres, and Cagliari.
In 1834, a castle was built at the behest of Eleonora of Arborea, which was destroyed in 1420 by the Genoese, who thereby depopulated the town, turning it into a hideaway for pirates and bandits.
This meant that in the 16th century it was occupied mainly by soldiers to combat the increasingly frequent phenomenon of piracy and smuggling.
Finally, in 1808, the small town was re-established; in fact, Emanuel I founded Santa Teresa and supported its settlement by donating plots of land to the colonies who moved there.
