In autumn, for example, Sardinia is a wonderful place to visit without any doubt: the mild temperatures allow you to enjoy the sea for a long time and there are many cultural opportunities that the region offers throughout its territory.

The occasion of a visit becomes particularly inviting thanks to Autumn in Barbagia, a rich event organized by the Nuoro Chamber of Commerce and its company Aspen. The event offers a journey between traditions and culture by promoting the region, its excellence and the breathtaking views that distinguish it through the involvement of 23 characteristic villages in the area.

Autumn in Barbagia is not only the name of the event, but also a promise for unforgettable memories. In the heart of Sardinia, it is an extensive territory between the slopes of the Gennagentu mountain massif and smaller hills.

The whole area of ​​Barbagia, from ancient history, is actually made up of various historical regions: the Barbagie di Belvì, Bitti, Nuoro, Ollolai and Seulo and the Mandrolisai area. Curious people and lovers of beauty will immediately fall in love with this Sardinian reality, characterized by cortes (open courtyards), narrow alleys, granite houses, paintings on the walls that tell the story of the place and typical flavors with great character.

There are also outdoor activities to enjoy in all seasons: The Supramonte, a vast limestone-dolomitic mountain complex, ensures fabulous walks for those who would like to take in sceneries of white rocks contrasting intense green vegetation.

The infamous villages of Barbagia, characterized by their almost ancient and magical charm, are also worth seeing. Sea lovers can be mesmerized by Cala Luna, a natural monument consisting of a fine strip of sand that disappears into the crystal clear sea between steep rocky walls. Do not miss out on the chance to explore the numerous sea caves along the shore, they are real wonders of nature.

3. Autumn in Barbagia, an event to not miss
