The second largest island of the Mediterranean managed to keep some of its natural, untouched beauty, which is more and more rare in modern Europe. Large herds of goat and sheep graze on the scarcely inhabited Campidano plain. Here the archaic patoral culture still lives on.
In the Parco della Giara di Gesturi National Park, a herd of 1,500 horses lives completely free. There are almost 8,000 ‘nuraghe’, ancient megalithic stone buildings built around 2,000 BC. The black diorite, polished by the sea and the wind, and the grey granite rocks, stand out ouf the blue sea.
The island is covered with macchia, a fragrant bush, as well as myrtle, thyme, rosemary and lavender. The landscape is full of olive trees, cork, almond trees and grapes. The narrow alleys of the old towns are edged by Sardinian and Toscan style buildings. If we add to this the beautiful stalactite caves, the monuments of Cagliari, the wild coast of Costa Smeralda, and the magnificent beaches, we can say that Sardinia is a nature lover''s paradise and a place for an idyllic vacation.
