Ozieri (Sardinian: Othieri) is a town and comune of approximatively 11,000 inhabitants in the province of Sassari, northern Sardinia (Italy), in the Logudoro historical region. Ozieri is the centre of the earliest known archaeological culture on Sardinia (known as Ozieri Culture).
- Grotte di San Michele (3500-2700 BC)

- Basilica of Sant'Antioco di Bisarcio, one of the largest Romanesque churches in Sardinia.
- Cathedral of the Immacolata, known from the 15th century. It was restored from 1550 to 1571. It has a nave and two aisles. It houses a poloptych of the Madonna di Loreto (16th century), work of a local master.
Ozieri gives its name to the Ozieri culture, a prehistoric civilization whose first findings were excavated in the nearby grotto of San Michele starting from 1914.
