Rent of boat in San Teodoro, excursions and history of San Teodoro Print
The territory is mainly hilly, in fact the only mountain is the huge granitic mass of Moltinieddu, characterised by clear torrential streams ploughing through the valleys, with suggestive waterfalls and panoramic terraces that overlook the sea. The origins of the place name are still unknown and under discussion.
The archaeological findings in the area have ascertained that the territory has been inhabited since the Neolithic Age. The territory was the site of continuous settlement throughout the whole of the following period, also thanks to its strategic position. Until the early part of the twentieth century, San Teodoro was part of the Commune of Posada. Later, it gained independent status and from the sixties onwards has undergone an extraordinary urbanistic re-organisation, which has caused the centre to become one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Island.
The urban layout of the village reflects the typical architecture of the Costa Smeralda, comprised of low houses in typical granite and trachyte materials. Throughout the village, there are a number of modern style squares and green areas rich with coloured flowers.
