"SANTA TERESA DI GALLURA - Church. Santa Teresa, a town on the northern tip of Sardinia, on the Strait of Bonifacio, was founded on August 12th 1808, by king Vittorio Emanuele I, and at the beginning was populated by smugglers, Corsican political exiles and some local families. The construction of the church started in 1835"
"SANTA TERESA - Way to the beach... The urban plan of the town was designed by king Vittorio Emanuele I in 1807 and with it is unique in Sardinia, with its straight streets, parallel and intersecting at right angles"
"SANTA TERESA - Pedestrian zone. At the end of the 19th century the town was discovered as a tourist resort. And you may see the ad on «Seadas Fresche» - a thin film of egg pasta, a soft cheese filling and a coating of melted honey, which, perhaps more than any other represents the Sardinian tradition. The origins of this cake are in the area of Orgosolo/Oliena. The name derives from the word «seu», meaning, in Sardinian dialect, the brilliance of the pancakes after they were covered in honey. The Seadas were prepared by women to celebrate the return of men from transhumance, and in principle were not regarded as a sweet, but as actual dishes. Today they are served as dessert"
"SANTA TERESA - Port and ferry to Corsica. According to the official site, «The coast on which Santa Teresa stands was the scene of the fights between the regular troops and the exponents of the ideals defended by the French Revolution, like the revolt of June 1802, caused by the priest Sanna – Corda and the notary Cilocco on the Spanish Tower of Longosardo»"
