SUPRAMONTE DI OLIENA

Its extension, of over 35 thousand hectares, gradually becomes invisible to the naked eye and is large enough to contain the territories of five villages, Baunei, Dorgali, Oliena, Orgosolo and Urzulei, and part of the Gulf of Orosei. Supramonte is a mountain range featuring plateaus and sinkholes. The landscape has distinctive features identical to each other: huge bastions, deep canyons and rocky peaks towering up towards the sky. However, each municipality has its ‘own’ Supramonte, with original and unique natural monuments.

The Nuragic village of Tiscali enriches the territory of Dorgali and Oliena. The Grotta del Bue Marino is the undisputed symbol of Dorgali; the gorge of Su Gorroppu identifies Baunei and also Dorgali. In the Supramonte di Oliena area, above the valley of Lanaittu, the cave of Corbeddu is well worth a visit.

Also in Oliena, you will remain speechless at the sight of Mount Corrasi, the highest peak in the mountain range (1463 metres), featuring a barren, rocky environment with chasms, aiguilles and unusually-shaped pinnacles, covered by 650 botanical species, most of which are exclusive to the limestones of central Sardinia and some of which exist only in the Corrasi area. It is also home to the Nurra de sas Palumbas, a cave famous for its wildlife.
