Sant'Antioco is situated on an island of the same name, which is the largest in the Sardinian islands and the fourth in Italy after Sicily, Sardinia and the Island of Elba. It is connected to the mother island thanks to an artificial isthmus and bridge built in the early 1980s. Sant'Antioco rises on the ruins of the ancient Phoenician-Punic and later Roman town of Sulky-Sulci.
