Culture

Non solo mare e montagna, questa zona selvaggia custodisce tesori archeologici e culturali di rara bellezza.

Sardinia is well-known for its natural wonders but also for its rich, thousand-years-old history.

In this area there are many interesting landmarks, like the remains of Tiscali, a village built over 3000 years ago inside a sinkhole.

If you are interested in Nuragic culture, we suggest a visit to Sa Sedda ‘e sos Carros, an archaeological site made up of huts and a well-preserved nuragic sacred fountain.

Close to Dorgali you can find the remains of a Nuraghe, an ancient and mysterious building built during the Bronze Age by the Nuragic Civilization.

Are you an art lover? Stop by the MAN, Museo d’Arte della Provincia di Nuoro, and have a look at their curated collection of works by Sardinian artists, such as Costantino Nivola, Mario Delitala e Maria Lai.

Take a stroll down Orgosolo’s colourful streets. On the buildings’ walls, there are over 150 vibrant murals, which make the whole village look like an amazing open-air art exhibition.

Avid readers will definitely love to visit the Museo Deleddiano, set inside the native house of Grazia Deledda, who receive a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1926.

If folklore and mystic traditions fascinate you, we suggest the Museo del Costume in Nuoro, which showcases an incredible collection of traditional costumes and jewels, and Mamoiada’s Museo delle Maschere Mediterranee, where you can learn the secrets of Sardinia’s traditional carnival masks and costumes.
