A few kilometers from Olbia and therefore from the coast, Telti rises on an area rich in springs and streams that have allowed particularly thick and luxuriant vegetation. The discovery of burials in cavities naturally produced in granite formations confirms the human presence in the area from the Neolithic period (5000-2700 BC). Some domus de janas are dated to the next age of copper. The area was densely populated in the Bronze Age and the Nuragic, Irish and Balares cultures left traces of their settlements with a series of nuraghi.
The small historic center is gathered around the beautiful church of Santa Vittoria, entirely built with exposed granite ashlars. Opposite, always with that granite that characterizes the town making it pleasant and evocative, is the Cultural and Natural Museum of Sardinia that collects objects of local daily life, from traditional domestic spaces, to animal life, botany and minerals.
Just outside the village, in the direction of Calangianus, stands the rural church of San Bachisio from the 17th century, celebrated in May with a community lunch. Particularly fascinating are the rituals of Holy Week and processions in traditional clothes for the feast days of the saints Anatolia and Vittoria.
