The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi). Visitors can still see remains of the 17th century walls near to San Lorenzo Cathedral, which happens to be the most attended place of worship in Genoa.

Olbia Guide

Olbia is an Italian city that is located in the north east of the island of Sardinia and its port receives ferries from the Italian mainland and acts as a gateway to the Costa Smeralda and provides facilities and services for tourists. Olbia is not as appealing as Alghero or Cagliari but the old part of the city contains Roman Baths, an impressive granite church and a number of other historic buildings. Popular with tourists is the medieval Pisan Romanesque church which is hewn out of Galluren granite where, in the apse, there are two 13th century frescos with the one on the left depicting San Simplicio, the Patron Saint of Olbia. A popular festival in the city is the Festa di San Simplicio which is one of the city's biggest and is celebrated over three days in the middle of May.
