Close to the shore, among wild olives, there are the ruins of the church of Saint Ponziano, a Pope who was allegedly banished from Rome and died in Tavolara (IIIrd century).  Surrounded by remains of "cumbessias", buildings used as shelters for believers on the day of the Patron's feast, the church still preserves a small apse. In Cala Chiesa is also located the village of Gurguary, the only surviving example of a medieval village in Sardinia. Currently, the island is owned by an Olbia-based family and visits are only allowed along the coast. Cala di Chiesa are the sandy shores of Molara.
