The white trachyte flap resembles a dog’s tail, especially when the sea is rough, hence the name: ‘bad dog’

CASTELSARDO

a medieval stronghold, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy

Perhaps in Roman times it was the mythical Tibula , in the Middle Ages it was certainly an impregnable fortress for centuries, protected by mighty walls and 17 towers, until the advent of modern weapons. The original nucleus of Castelsardo was built around the Doria castle , dating back, according to tradition, to 1102, but more likely to the end of the 13th century, the current seat of the suggestive museum of Mediterranean weaving , one of the most visited in Sardinia. One of the most beautiful villages in Italy is a medieval stronghold, characterized by nature, history, artisan and religious traditions: welcome to Castelsardo .

  • Museum of Mediterranean weaving: The Museum of Mediterranean weaving, MIM, located inside the Doria fortress, is the ideal place to preserve the ancient tradition of weaving.
  • Doria Castle : The place and perhaps a first fortification were founded in 1102, the castle as such only in the thirteenth century (probably around 1270) by the noble Genoese Doria family as “Castel Genovese” or “Castrum Januae” with great strategic importance. Until the fifteenth century, the city and the castle were the seat of the Doria family and served to dominate the possessions in northern Sardinia.
  • Cathedral of Sant’Antonio Abate: The bell tower overlooking the sea, closed by a majolica dome and with the underlying crypts, which house the ‘Maestro di Castelsardo’ museum, will amaze you.

AFTERNOON EVENING

SAN SALVATORE DI SINIS

Welcome to the Sardinian Far West

The Sardinian far west in a village inhabited only a few days in September, on the occasion of the Corsa degli Scalzi . San Salvatore di Sinis, is a small village built in a sacred area since the Nuragic age and transformed for over two decades (1967-90), into set of ‘spaghetti western’. The resemblance to American frontier landscapes meant that it was rented to film producers, becoming Arizona or New Mexico village (saloon included) in films such as ‘Colt Garter’ (1968). Once the genre went out of fashion, it remained an attraction for onlookers, scenography in the twentieth century, a place of worship for millennia.

  • Church of San Salvatore: Built in the second seventeenth century, built on a prehistoric sanctuary carved into the rock. Under the left aisle, from a ladder, you enter the hypogeum which has traces of attendance that go up to the Neolithic. A corridor leads, through rectangular and circular rooms (one with a well), to the main room with a spring : in the Nuragic age it was used for the pagan cult of water. Then, in the Punic era, the area was dedicated to Sid , the healing god, and in the same vein the Romans practiced the cult of Asclepius.
  • Sas Cumbessias : The church is surrounded by sas cumbessias , small and unadorned houses built at the end of the 17th century, used as accommodation for pilgrims during novenas, in honor of San Salvatore, between August and September. In the ‘twenty years of cinema’ of the village, they were an integral part of the western scenography.
  • The barefoot race: One of the most evocative and heartfelt identity events in Sardinia. The procession involves over 800 curridoris in white habit, who accompany the simulacrum of the saint on a long dirt road from the church of Santa Maria Assunta di Cabras to the hamlet. And they bring it back to the parish the following day.

MORNING

VILLAGE OF ORGOSOLO

Cradle of archaic traditions that offers glimpses of a timeless Sardinia

The story told on the walls of a town-museum . Orgosolo reveals a deep bond with its Barbary roots and with the customs and traditions of the past: it is the homeland of canto a Tenore , a Unesco World Heritage Site, as well as a country of murals . The village, of four thousand and 500 inhabitants, is famous all over the world for the evocative paintings that adorn the streets and squares, houses in the historic center and the facades of new buildings. They tell of politics and culture, intimate dissent and popular struggles, malaise and social justice, daily life and pastoral traditions. At the end of the 19th century, the town rose to prominence due to banditry: the director Vittorio De Seta, in ‘Banditi a Orgosolo’ (1961), describes its struggle in defense of the lands expropriated by the state. During the twentieth century, the still active cultural ferment of muralism developed, originally an instrument of protest. Its center is a must for anyone passing through Barbagia.

  • Murals of Orgosolo: The village is famous all over the world for the evocative paintings that adorn the streets and squares, houses in the historic center and the facades of new buildings. They tell of politics and culture, intimate dissent and popular struggles, malaise and social justice, daily life and pastoral traditions. During the twentieth century, the still active cultural ferment of muralism developed, originally an instrument of protest. Various artists, both local and international, have helped to create an open-air museum: you will admire a heritage of 150 works, which are striking for their liveliness of colors and stylistic value.
  • Mask of the Mamuthone : It is the first real monument that is encountered at the entrance, the symbol, or the Mask of the Mamuthone. Excellent instagrammable point to share on your social networks.

SORGENTE DI GOLOGONE

It evokes fresh water and generous green

Su Gologone , at the foot of Mount Uddè , is the most important Sardinian spring, a natural monument since 1998, and the main resurgence of the vast Supramonte karst system. Over the millennia the water has dug meanders through the bowels of the subsoil to resurface as a small lake set between high walls of dolomitic rock. Its shades range from emerald green to turquoise , up to intense blue, depending on the reflections of the sun. You will listen to the incessant roar of the imposing mass of very pure low-mineral water, on average 500 liters per second, which gushes from a vertiginous crack that is perennially filled. Clarity and depth are an irresistible challenge reserved for cave divers who come from all over the world: in 2010 Alberto Cavedon explored it up to 135 meters.

  • Hours : Every day – 09:00 / 20:00
  • Entrance ticket : € 2.00 per person
  • Reservation : It is not necessary, in any case we recommend that you call to ask for information.
  • Clothing : Comfortable suitable for the season
  • Google Reviews : 1846 reviews – 4.6 / 5 Ratings
  • Tips : The visit lasts 20 minutes (only for the source), consists of an explanation from a guide on the karst sources of Su Gologone and you reach a terrace above the source from which you can look out. You can still enjoy the refreshment point and other small attractions of the Park such as the rock church.

A magnificent park full of plants, waterfalls and animals

A blast from the past in a small renovated village immersed in a park full of plants, waterfalls and animals. In the Littu valley, in the territory of Dorgali, dominated by the limestone bastions Ruiu and Irveri, there is the S’Abba Frisca Museum Park (fresh water). It owes its name to the very rich karst spring located inside the park it feeds the fountains, the small lake and the suggestive waterfalls surrounded by the majestic white poplars. Just two kilometers from the Gulf of Orosei, considered one of the most beautiful coastal sceneries in Sardinia, S’Abba Frisca is located in a fairytale setting , between megalithic walkways, a dense forest of holm oaks, citrus groves and centuries-old trees that offer shade and cool too. on the hottest days
