SET BETWEEN SEA AND MOUNTAIN, HISTORY AND ART
The South-western coast is one of the most surprising areas of Sardinia. We’re talking about the Sulcis district, the most ancient earth crust of Italy, which came into being 600 million years ago, with its scenery moulded by the force of time and nature. Its long white or golden beaches alternate with tiny bays and rugged rock formations. High sand dunes and sheer cliffs frame its crystal clear sea. There are magical sea depths to tempt divers looking for natural spectacles or archaeological remains The forest of Pixina Manna with its mountain sanctuary and waterfall with natural pool, or the nature reserve of Is Cannoneris, home to the Sardinian deer and the golden eagle. The elegant pink flamingo of the lagoons and karst caves with their underground lakes. The prehistoric fortresses such as the nuraghe of Santa Margherita, the ancient Spanish watch towers dotting the coast, the archaeological city set on the sea at Nora built in turn by the Carthaginians, Phoenicians and Romans, the quarter of Castello in Cagliari with its museums. Its ancient food and wine traditions, handicrafts, religious and folklore festivals. Timeless emotions and ever new discoveries.
