Municipality in the province of Olbia-Tempio located in Gallura region, at the foot of Mount Nieddu, San Teodoro is a famous tourist resort on the northeastern coast of Sardinia, in an inlet between Punta Sabbatino and Punta Ottiolu. The municipal area, which includes several districts, features a large lake area and several wide beaches.
The area was populated since Prehistoric and Nuragic Ages, while the first settlement is attested since the colonization of the Romans. In the XIII century the town was part of the Giudicato of Gallura and submitted the domain of Pisa. The population was decimated by plague epidemics and frequent pirate raids, until late XVII century, when San Teodoro started to repopulate. It was conquered by the Aragonese, and later became part of territories under the domain of the Savoy. With the assignment of municipalities, the town was linked to Posada, to which it already belonged during the Middle Ages. In 1927 it was assigned to the province of Nuoro and in 2005 to the province of Olbia-Tempio.
