OZIERI, a town of Sardinia in the province of Sassari, from which it is 34 M. E.S.E. by rail. Pop. (1901) 9555. It is situated 128o ft. above sea-level on a steep slope, but faces north, and so is not very healthy. In the centre of the town is a square with a fine fountain of 1594. The cathedral was restored in 1848; it is the seat of the diocese of Bisarcio. The former cathedral of this diocese lies some distance to the N.W.; it is a fine Romanesque building of the 12th and 13th centuries. The district of Ozieri is famous for its butter—the only butter made in Sardinia—cheese and other pastoral products; cattle are also bred here. See D. Scano, Scoria dell' arte in Sardegna dal xi. al xiv. secolo (Cagliari-Sassari, 1907). p. 200.
