Mores

Overview

Discovering prehistoric Sardinia

At the foot of Monte Lachesos, among the limestone hills carved by the Flumini Mannu river, the small town of Mores is a must for anyone visiting Sardinia to discover its rich and often mysterious history. 

On the outskirts of this agricultural town in the heart of Logudoro stands an important archaeological monument known as the Dolmen di Sa Coveccada, a grey-pink trachytic tuff construction composed of three large three-metre slabs positioned vertically and topped by a fourth slab. Its purpose? It is a burial chamber dating back to between the end of the 5th and the end of the 3rd millennium BC. 

Around Mores, you can visit the prehistoric caves of Su Buccu ‘e Sas Fadas and Su Puttu Porchinu, as well as numerous “nuraghi” towers, including Mannu Suldu, Tresnuraghes and Istatos

We recommend visiting the delightful old town, where you can admire the 17th-century Church of Santa Caterina with its high bell tower and the small, Byzantine Church of Santa Croce. 

If you want to immerse yourself in pristine nature, be sure to stop by the Oasi delle Steppe Sarde, managed by WWF Italy and characterised by Miocene highlands and volcanic hills.
