Provincia dell'Ogliastra

Overview

Paradise land, turquoise waters and stone cathedrals

Ogliastra is distinguished by its beaches and bays, wild nature and rugged mountains. An archaic land, dotted with olive trees and nuraghi. An area where time seems to pass slowly

A tour of the Cale is a must, to admire the most striking corners of the Gulf of Orosei. At Cala Goloritzè, the very tall stacks are striking, while along the coast, the Grotta del Fico, rich in stalactites and stalagmites, is worth a stop.

Trekking enthusiasts can venture into the Su Gorroppu Canyon, one of the deepest in Europe, visit Gairo Vecchio, one of the region's many ghost towns, and push on to the Supramonte mountain complex, amidst forests and rocky peaks.

For archaeology enthusiasts, however, there is the Nuraghe Serbissi, dating back to the 17th century BC Also worth a visit are the Tacchi dell'Ogliastra, calcareous-dolomitic mountains named for their conformation similar to the heel of a shoe, and the Scala di San Giorgio, a natural pass connecting the Rio Pardu valley with that of the Flumineddu.
