Around Tonnara di Su Pranu, there were old anglers’ houses with typical rooves made of Sardinian shingles. Today those typical buildings still exist, which make Portoscuso a very suggestive town.
The Spanish in the second half of the XVIth century built the coastal tower, in order to protect the village from the pirates. . It stands on the top of a little promontory and from where it is possible to admire stunning landscapes of the town and surroundings. Perfect spot at night for a romantic view surrounded by the moon (that is where the name Moon’s Tower comes from).
This is the main and most popular beach in Portoscuso. 200 m. of fine, soft white sand. Portopaglietto has a clear-blue turquoise, calm and crystalline sea.
Gorgeous small marina located in the East coast of the town. Very handy spot for reach-ing the nearby islands of S. Antioco and Carloforte.
Built in ‘500, a symbolic monument witness the importance of the tuna fishing for the local economy.
Very cosy beach a few steps away from Moon’s Tower. A little strip of fine white sand between lovely houses and pretty rocks. It is well connected to the streets, only a 5-minute walk, and a few steps away.
It is the highest coastal zone of Portoscuso, fully immersed in the nature, where you can find a walking/cycling path with stunning views, military fortresses and bunkers from the World War II.
The church was built around 1670 in the historical town centre next to the Tonnara, in or-der to honour Santa Maria D’Itria who had oriental origins.
