The city of Iglesias lies in the southwest of Sardinia. The area used to be an important mining center for zinc and silver. That is partly the reason why it was inhabited since prehistoric times. In recorded history the city (re-)appears in the 8th century. For a while it was part of the Byzantine empire as the San Salvatore church still testifies. In the later part of the Middle Ages a building boom of churches took place. This gave the city its name: Villa di Chiesa, or city of Churches.
In 1321 Spanish troops invaded Sardinia. Villa di Chiesa was the first city to fall and at the same time the city that profited most from Spanish rule. Villa di Chiesa was translated into Iglesias, the name that the city still carries despite returning to Italy already in 1720. The fortunes of Iglesias run parallel to the fortunes of the mining industry. In the 21st century the mines have all but disappeared replaced by tourism as the main source of income.
The various churches are an obvious tourist attraction of Iglesias. The mine industry heritage is another. The mountains hold various caves, some of which are open to the public. The Hillclimb is located north of Iglesias near the Linas-Marganai nature park. The mountains are rugged and include sharp cliffs, streams, caves and waterfalls. They can reach altitudes of 1000m. The mountainrange runs right up to the sea, creating a beautiful coastline.
