Supramonte

The wildest and most secret soul of Sardinia is located in the heart of this impervious limestone plateau.

The area of Supramonte is divided into five territories, corresponding to the municipalities to which it belongs – i.e. Baunei, Dorgali, Oliena, Orgosolo and Urzulei. They are separated in two main blocks by the mountain range of Genna Silana, a crossroads of hikers and travelers. Everywhere, the mountain is characterized by a hostile and almost impenetrable verticality. This same verticality falls onto the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Orosei with over 50 km of cliffs overlooking the sea, only broken by deep canyons (sas codulas) and rare and wild coves which are popular excursion destinations- i.e. Cala Goloritzé, Cala Luna, Cala Mariolu. Inside, a dense succession of ravines and plateaus steeped in furrowed fields marks the heart of a harsh and difficult territory. The Gorroppu gorge - one of the deepest in Europe - cuts down through the long limestone wall. Just beyond it, the Su Suercone dolina amazes visitors with its sudden vastness. In such a difficult region, humans have carved out their own space at great effort. Visitors walk on the legacy of his work, along prehistoric paths in search of remote settlements, or the traces of shepherds and charcoal burners, to visit the remains of the huts where they lived - true masterpieces of stone and juniper. Everywhere we look, traces of karst. Caves among the longest in Italy, sudden swallow-holes, sinkholes and furrowed fields sletch a unique landscape - different from anything you have ever experienced before.
