Nuoro

Overview

Authentic and surprising land

Sardinia is not only sea and beaches, and the province of Nuoro is a clear demonstration of this. An area rich in history, art and traditions, which varies from kilometre to kilometre, passing from green valleys to high mountains.

One of the symbols of the Nuoro area is Monte Ortobene, a 955-metre granite mountain. On its summit, the Cuccuru Nigheddu, the Statue of the Redeemer stands. One can admire the wonderful landscape, which opens up to the Gennargentu and the Gulf of Orosei. Not far away, in the Sedda Oddai park area, is the small Church of Solitude, which houses the remains of writer Grazia Deledda.

A must-see destination is the Tanca Manna nuraghe, a megalithic monument in the shape of a single tower with a dome, built with rocks and granite blocks, with two opposing niches inside.

On the Supramonte slopes, just a few kilometres from Oliena, one comes across the karstic spring of Su Gologone and the deep canyon of Su Gorropu, created by the erosion of Rio Flumineddu. Finally, the cave of Ispinigoli, inside which rings, jewellery and sun symbols were found, revealing the existence of a Phoenician sacrificial well.
