SARDINIA HOLIDAYS: MURALES AND TRADITION IN BARBAGIA

Travel in the heart of Sardinia

  • The fascinating village of Orgozolo and its storical Murales
  • The museum of the passionate sardinian novelist Grazia Deledda
  • The M.A.N (Ethnographic Museum) and the Museum of life tradition
  •  The Nuraghic site of Tiscali,  Sa Tanca Manna or the fascinating Corbeddu caves
 
This sardinian holiday takes you to Nuoro in the Barbagia region right at the heart of the island. The name of the region derives from the latin ‘barbaria’ since its inhabitants had a reputation as fierce defenders of their land against invaders.
Present-day Barbagia is a rugged, mountainous region rich in history and ancient traditions. The Supramonte mountain is a limestone massif covered with vines, almond and olive trees.
You can explore this area and its ancient traditions in a variety of ways; taking a walk along the coastline, going on a hike or visiting villages, archaeological sites and museums.
For those who enjoy authentic local customs, many communities in Barbagia put on special festivals to display their remarkable heritage and culinary traditions. From September to December, ‘Cortes Apertas’ takes place, when the courtyards of local historic houses are open to the public. In February, there is the fabulous Mamoiada Carnival, a parade of the mysterious ‘Mamuthones’ people in their masks and traditional costume, whose history dates back 2000 years.

PROGRAMME


DAY 1 - Arrival in Barbagia
Collect your hire car and head for the delightful country hotel that will be your accommodation for the duration of your trip.

DAY 2 - The wall paintings of Orgosolo and Fonni
As you wander through the streets of the typical Sardinian village of Orgosolo, you will notice the wall paintings created during the period of militant demonstrations in the village from 1968 to 1970. This artistic expression of social comment has continued over the years, as a reflection of daily village life as well as unrest. There are superb examples also to be found in Fonni, the highest village in Sardinia at 1000m.
On your return, build up an appetite for a gastronomic Sardinian meal by taking a refreshing swim in the natural spring water at Su Gologne.

DAY 3 -  Nuoro, the cultural capital of Sardinia
The most interesting part of Nuoro is the historic quarter of Santu Pedru. On its main street, Corso Garibaldi, are museums exhibiting both traditional artefacts and the work of significant Sardinian artists. The sculptor Francesco Ciusa is represented, as are eminent authors including Sebastiano Satta and Grazia Deledda, who received the 1926 Nobel Prize for Literature. Her home is now the Deleddiana Museum. Nuoro has a variety of museums to offer, depending on your particular interests, such as the M.A.N (Ethnographic Museum) or the Museum of Life and Popular Traditions.
Other cultural places of interest are the Nuraghic site of Sa Tanca Manna or the fascinating Corbeddu caves.

DAY 4 - Tiscali and the Gulf of Orosei
A guided walk near Dorgali takes you to the Nuragic site of Tiscali, a village situated within a cave on the Supramonte and dating back more than 14000 years.
Hillsides covered with green and cork oak trees and the colourful aromatic scrubland along the coastline of Barbagia give you superb views over the sea. You can explore the stunning Gulf of Orosei with its beautiful beaches, coves and fishing villages, visit Cala Gonone and the Blue Marino cave or sample the blue waters of Cala Luna or Cala Liberotto.
