In the heart of a protohistoric village hidden away and suspended in time


From the car park, head towards Riu Frumeneddu – the river that flows nearby in the village of Sa Barva, where it is crossed by a bridge over beautiful pools of emerald water. A little further on is a junction – turn right north on a dirt road bordered by a fence on the uphill side, under high walls. After about 10 minutes of walking you will reach a widening on the left (wooden signs), that is in the direction of a claer pass between the high walls – S'Iscala 'and Surtana. This can be reached by leaving the dirt road and going up a steep mule track. The ascent is rapid and spectacular with beautiful views over the valley. Continue in a westward direction, along a path marked with a trail marker in paint, at the bottom of the valley of Surtana – the wide, arc valley you are in, surrounded by high walls of beautiful limestone. You should ignore the detours going up the banks. In the middle of the valley, the path begins to descend, allowing you to glimpse the bulk of Mount Tiscali – the destination of your itinerary . among the branches of holm oaks. Continue in a further slight slope and on level ground under the woods until you reach a widening among the junipers. Here you turn left uphill, always along the marked path. Some steep bends lead under a yellowish grotto, after which you have to take another fork on the right, always marked with trail and wooden signs. The trail continues to climb on a wide rocky terrace, with stunning views of Surtana as well as the wild and wide Lanaitho valley to the north. After passing the ruins of a hut you reach the edge of the dolina valley where the village of Tiscali is hidden. A guided tour is available for a fee. The return journey is the same as the outward journey.
