You can get there from Orgòsolo, taking the provincial road 48 just outside the village, to follow a 25-kilometre stretch of scenic road. The view changes abruptly, from meadows and peaceful oak forests to a barren rocky landscape dotted with the occasional oak tree before transforming again near the forestry station at Funtana Bona in the heart of the Forest of Mòntes, a site of great natural beauty. A short distance away, the Funtana Bona spring dominates the limestone relief of Monte Fumai, a mountain whose caves were once the refuge not only for shepherds, but also bandits. Here you can still see some traditional shepherd's houses, with the characteristic pinnettos, or circular huts with a conical roof made of juniper branches. From the forestry station, the route changes to a cart track and then a footpath, leading to the one of the oldest and largest ilex groves in the Mediterranean, the Lecceta di Sas Baddes. You can also reach the limestone tower of Monte Novo San Giovanni, 1316 m above sea level. The tower has walls with a sheer drop of over 70 metres and the view from the top is incredible, stretching far across the Nuoro mountains.
