Silanus is a village that stands on a generous, fertile land, where cereals, barley, broad beans, olives, vines and fruit trees have always been cultivated. A town with a very ancient history, it is surrounded by the traces of this past, precious traces with a long story to tell. Imposing nuraghi such as the Corbos and numerous tombs of the giants spring up like stone flowers in the green landscape. Another example of this beauty is the Santa Sabina complex, which includes a nuraghe, a tomb of the giants and a medieval church. Also splendid is the Church of San Lorenzo, a jewel of religious architecture that adorns the historic centre with its elegance and which houses, inside, valuable 14th-century frescoes in which, among the images of saints, the figure of St Christopher stands out.
