The church of Saint James the Apostle is located on top of a shale hill from which you can observe in several directions the diversity of the landscape, flat on the south side up to the granite ridges of Mount Senes; on the north side the rugged and majestic limestone of Monte Albo and the valley through which the Rio Locoli flows.

 

The country church was built in 1870. A chronicle of the time says that the church was built with the ruins of a nuraghe. The churchyard is noteworthy for the presence of a large wild olive tree.

The religious building is modest in size with a simple gable façade topped by a bellfry. The adjacent structures were built recently for catering purposes during the feast of St. James which is celebrated on 1st of May each year. The interior is a single nave with a wooden vault and presents a simple, popular surrounding with a central altar and recesses containing the polychrome wooden statues of St. James in two versions, of St. Mark and St. Rocco.
