During my trip to Sardinia, I discovered Fordongianus by exploring the back country of Oristano province.

My suggestion:
Visit the village and its Roman baths on foot to enjoy the beauty of the site. It is a very pleasant walk. Don’t forget your swimsuit if you want to take advantage of the thermal baths.
My review

Fordongianus sits on the left bank of the Tirso, spanned by a magnificent bridge built on Roman foundations. Casa Madeddu, which is in fact the cultural centre of the village, is located just next to the parish church of San Pietro. I also admired Casa Aragonèse and its statues.

From the church, I walked down to a group of very interesting ruins: the Roman baths of Caddas. They are fed by hot water springs that are still active today. You can still see the rectangular baths and the adjacent portico. The water flows from a beautiful fountain and basins. These waters are said to have therapeutic and curative properties. I wanted to dip my foot into the water but I very quickly pulled it back - the water is boiling!

You can see the source near the river and it is possible to swim there because the water is very pleasant. A building has been built to the left, where it is possible to enjoy the benefits of the thermal springs for a modest sum. The entire site has been developed and there are many signs informing the visitor.

Several foot or bicycle trails have been marked out to help you discover the surroundings.
