    He/she will keep forever visiting Sardinia will remember ... from Nuorese can say that Mount Ortobene evokes the sense of belonging to our land and to the city of Nuoro. Mount Ortobene is us, our hearts, although because municipal administrations as well as sometimes the indifference of some citizens means that the latter is not fully appreciated ... what maybe hopefully is changing for quite some time now. anyone will go for a ride in his Woods past the fountains distributed all the way, stunning cliff faces different shapes, its Moss and ancient trees, the vantage points where you can splurge with the mind in the immensity of the stretches that lead down to the sea, its fauna and its flora. parks and historic site activities in cima...il the Redeemer that with her hand strives to bless the city. Hope anyones can capture the magic of it. point of interest.

  • Mount Ortobene is a lovely location with a breathtaking view, there are several OASIS and the hiking trails and excursions. To see the statue of Christ the Redeemer that gives rise to the traditional feast of the Redeemer celebrated on 29 August every year is preceded by the traditional parade on the Sunday before the costumes of Sardinia. Unfortunately there is little food services and refreshments, a shame for a place so "magical".

  • If you have to forget the world, car parks, walk, breathe and meditate. There are marked paths for walking. Is beautiful and wild.

  • A green oasis just a short walk from the town. Ideal place to stroll and picnic spot in the Green
