Landmark
See the murals of a village that highlight the rural lifestyle of the area at Murales di Tinnura. The facades of the houses of the village are decorated with realistic murals that were painted with expert craftsmanship by the locals. Observe the art, which was made with trompe-l'oeil effects, simulating a 3-D look. Locals actually warn people to be careful when they drive through the village--some murals look so realistic that you can mistake the images for real people! Themes of agriculture, old crafts, and folklore are represented in about 30 door-to-door murals. You can buy local crafts at stalls next to the road and murals.

  • Although accessible by pointing your satellite navigation system, the village of Tinnura (OR) is INEXPLICABLY not indicated by road signs, from wherever you are! Entering the village is like taking a full immersion in an outdoor museum of folk traditions of the Sardinian people. Most of the murals are in excellent condition, but definitely for some urgent maintenance and repair: it would be a shame to let deteriorate beyond repair. The characteristic of the frescoes is that-in most cases-envelop the entire facades of buildings; the authors, in fact, you are not limited to the usual "anchors" of fresco, but they extended their work on the entire space. A heritage really to be protected and do not discard!!
