Iglesias lies at the foot of the Marganai mountains, in south-western Sardinia. The area has been inhabited since the Nuraghic age, as witnessed by the remains visible in many sites: Is Cadonis, Medau Mannu, Punta Sa Pannara, Santa Barbara, the domus de janas of San Benedetto, the tombs of the giants of Genna Solu and Martiadas and the temple at Serra Abis.

Iglesias’ other claim to fame are its many churches
