Near the town, stop and admire the natural beauties of the Ogliastra region and don’t miss a short trip to the secluded beaches of Cala Mariolu, Cala Luna, Cala Sisine and Cala Goloritzè.
For those of you who prefer excursions and trekking, this corner of Sardinia gives you the chance to enjoy an unspoilt natural habitat, teeming with typical Mediterranean plants and trees; fascinating combinations of colour which blend with heady scents and beautiful scenery.
If your heart brings you to Sardinia you’ll feel the call and fascination of its centuries’ old culture; the many-hued costumes the women wear on local feast days and religious holidays and the frenzied horse races are just two aspects of this vital cultural heritage where tradition goes hand in hand with modernity.
Local handicraft products have their own particular fascination: examine the intricate marvels of traditional filigree jewellery, the abstract, savage shapes of masks and costumes, rooted in an ancient, almost tribal tradition.
The traces of this ancient culture reveal in its ruins the original grandeur and heights of a civilisation reached many years before the Egyptians built their pyramids.
The territory is vast and its ever-changing nature backdrop continually surprises us with emotional experiences worthy of the pen of the great writers and novelists who have visited this land over the centuries.
