Dorgali

Overview

Positioned between the sea of the Gulf of Orosei and the rocky peaks of the Supramonte, age-old repositories of wild and evocative nature, the town of Dorgali is surprising for the historical and environmental richness of its surroundings, as well as an ancient centre dotted with shops displaying typical handicrafts and food and wine products.

Archaeology enthusiasts can make a stop at the town's Civic Archaeological Museum, which houses various artefacts recovered from the excavations of Serra Orrios, an ancient nuragic complex open to visitors, about ten kilometres from the centre of Dorgali.

Nestled in the centre of a fertile and lush plateau, the village of Serra Orrios preserves the remains of a settlement dating back over 3,000 years, consisting of large basalt blocks that formed circular constructions, votive temples and long defensive walls.

A few minutes' drive away, another masterpiece, this time created by nature rather than humans, is revealed among the rocky caverns of the Ispinigoli cave. A grandiose geological trail lead into the mountain: among the imposing walls and pinnacles, a limestone column about 38 metres high stands out due to its size and rarity, and seems to support the entire cavity.
