The basilica of San Simplicio, in Olbia, is the most important and ancient religious monument of north-eastern Sardinia and a testimony of the spread of Christianity on the island. Cathedral until 1839, parish church since 1955, it was given the title of minor basilica, in 1993, by Pope John Paul II. It is dedicated to San Simplicio, the proto-bishop of the city and martyr under the emperor Diocletian.

The building stands in the upper part of the historic center and was built on the ruins of a Roman pagan temple, perhaps dedicated to Hercules. Originally dedicated to the Conversion of Saint Paul, it was the only parish in the Olbies until 1954, when the ancient basilica of San Simplicio was reopened.

The Olbia aqueduct was built by the Romans between the I and II centuries. d. C., to collect water coming from the springs of Mount Cabu Abas.
