The Nuragic village of Tiscali

Tiscali is a stunning Nuragic site set in the middle of a mountain and dating back to over 3000 years ago. It is just over its namesake mountain – just at the border between the Supramontes of Oliena and Dorgali – within a huge sinkhole, which makes it invisible from the outside. Due to the lack of springs and the difficulty of working the land nearby, this place might seem quite inhospitable, and yet many people after the founders chose to live here in the following centuries, until probably the High Middle Ages.

Sa Sedda ’e sos Carros

Sa Sedda ’e sos Carros is a Nuragic village used by people between 1200 and 700 BC.
Its uniqueness comes from two structures tied to the cult of water: the sacred spring has a circular shape and some ram heads from which water would flow, and a terraced ceremonial bath where people used to immerse and perform their purifying rituals.

Corbeddu Cave

The Corbeddu Cave in the Lanaitho valley is one of the most important sites of the island because it speaks about paramount moments in the history of man, culture, and nature.

The site is named after the famous bandit Giovanni Corbeddu, who made this place his home while hiding in the ’800s. It is said that you can still see his signature in one of the rooms, along with a drawing of a scale, a symbol of equity and justice.
Most importantly, though, the traces of Homo sapiens in Sardinia come from here.

Mount Corrasi and the Massive of Supramonte

Mount Corrasi is a natural hiking paradise in Sardinia. A massive limy-dolomitic wall dotted with olives and holm oaks at its bottom while shining white at the top.
This mountain hosts 70 endemic plant species – some only found here, like the extremely rare Ribes Sardoum Martelli) – and it was once the kingdom of giant vultures and the Sardinian deer. Today we see a vibrant fauna, including muflons, wild boars, martens, foxes, wild cats, weasels, dormouse,  wild Sardinian hares and wild rabbits. You can also spot some birds of prey like the Golden Eagle, the goshawk, the sparrow hawk, the Peregrin falcon and the buzzard.

Su Gologone Springs

Su Gologone is a spectacular resurgent that looks like a small lake within two high dolomitic walls. When you visit it, you’ll be amazed by the crystal clear waters with shades of emerald green, teal up to deep blue.
The springs are at the bottom of Mount Uddè, in the Oliena’s Supramonte. They can be regarded as one of the main ones in Sardinia, thanks to their water capacity of more than 500 litres per second. This number can reach 10.000 with the high tide!
