Located on the north east of Sardinia, San Simplicio was built on a small hill that at the time was outside the city walls, in an area that the Carthaginian used as a cemetery. The main body was built in the late 11th century, the rest of the church was completed in the early and mid 12th century. Nowadays, the church is particularly important for the celebrations of San Simplicio which take part each year in May.

San Simplicio si celebra ogni anno a Maggio, ad Olbia, città di cui è il patrono. E' una festa molto amata dai locali ma che sta pian piano attraendo un maggior numero di turisti, attirati anche da tanti altri eventi collaterali come la sagra delle cozze o le sfilate in abiti tradizionali, i canti e i balli. La festa prevede anche il bellissimo Palio della Stella di San Simplicio, che ha luogo in via Re di Puglia. I festeggiamenti si concludono con dei bellissimi fuochi d'artificio.
