  • 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.
