Porto Torres is a town in the province of Sassari, in northern Sardinia, Italy.
The town of Porto Torres stands on the coast of the Gulf of Asinara, about 20 km north west of Sassari. The town's busy harbour, almost entirely artificial, lies to the right of the mouth of the River Mannu. Porto Torres was founded by a group of Roman citizens in the I century A.C. and was given the name 'Turris Libisonys'.
The settlement developed rapidly and became an important trading centre and port, in particular for goods bound for the port of Ostia, and later, under the reign of the Flavio Emperors, it became a Roman Municipium. The town boasted thermal baths, an aqueduct, temples, basilicas and magnificent villas, and was connected to other setlements in Sardinia by consular roads.
