An early Sardinian church

This beautiful early church, San Giovanni in Sinis, dates at least from the 6th century AD, and may be even earlier. It stands on the Sinis Peninsula, roughly half-way down the western coast of the island, and most likely owes it origins to early Christians arriving at the nearby port of Tharros - a few hundred metres away - and immediately setting up a place of worship.
