Description
Built in the late 11th century on a short hill, once located outside the city's walls, the Basilica of Saint Simplicio in Olbia is the most important and ancient religious monument of the Sardinia north-oriental. In the middle of the apse are two ruined frescoes, depicting St. Simplicius and Victor of Fausania, who was bishop of Olbia after 595 and is considered a saint only in this city. Under the altar are the relics of Simplicius discovered in 1614 while excavating the church's crypt. #11th_century #basilica #chiesa_san_simplicio #church #Fausania #Gallura #monumento_religioso #Olbia #religiuos_monument #San_Simplicio #Sardegna #sardinia #St_Simplicius #XI_secolo
