Besides the historical traces, there are miles of unspoilt coastline with hidden coves and sandy bays. The majestic cliffs of Sinis jut out to sea in a spectacular fashion and form part of a marine protected zone.
Embracing mountains, lakes and isolated villages, the region has delightfully retained its oldest customs and you will often see locals wearing typical costumes or working in a craft shop trying to keep up the traditions. The region also hosts some of the Sardinia's most intriguing festivals and each village organises at least one "festa" a year, an event not to miss! Nuoro's Museum, "The Museo della Vita e delle Tradizioni Sarde" invites guests to discover local costumes, jewellery, masks, carpets and other handicrafts.
Surrounded by beautiful mountain landscapes and fertile lands which produce some of the finest regional ingredients on the island of Sardinia, Orgosolo is a fascinating little town with heaps of character. Located just a 30-minute drive from our breath-taking Hotel Su Gologone, Orgosolo is well worth the drive for lovers of history, art and food. The town is perhaps most famous for its murales. These political paintings are spread across the walls of Orgosolo, discussing everything from politics to international issues.
