Baunei

Overview

At an altitude of almost 500 metres, the village of Baunei looms over the Ogliastra landscape from the top of the limestone rock wall of Monte Santo, to which the buildings and steep streets of the village cling.

Visiting the streets of the historical centre of Baunei, you are immersed in a timeless context: groups of shepherds from Ogliastra and Barbagia meet among the old houses of the village, overlooking steep, winding alleys and the graceful domes of the church of San Nicola, the town's main place of worship.

Climbing northwards from Baunei, not far from the narrow and very deep karst chasm of Su Sterru, the bucolic Golgo plateau appears. This is the gateway to some of the most enchanting beaches in the Gulf of Orosei, such as cala Sisine, cala Mariolu and cala Goloritzé, which can be reached on foot along some steep, rocky paths overlooking the sea. Alternatively, from the district of Santa Maria Navarrese, convenient boat trips are organised to visit these bays and inlets of a thousand shades of blue.
