Sardinia has always been known for its crystal clear sea and white sand, but not many people know that Sardinian culture and traditions are closely linked to the activities of the territory, from agriculture to farming and craftsmanship . In fact, for those who like to treat themselves to an active holiday with walks, boat trips and excursions in Sardinia, our region is full of opportunities to visit monuments, learn about the area you visit as well as taste typical dishes and products.
There are many museums in Gallura that you can visit during your Sardinia, between history and traditions of the place; for example, we point out the Galluras Museum located in Luras, known because it preserves the last hammer of the Femina Agabbadora, the MEOC Ethnographic Museum of Aggius similar to that of Luras but with a large part dedicated to the art of carpet weaving of which Aggius still preserves the long tradition.
The island of Sardinia and especially the Gallura, is rich in archaeological monuments of the Nuragic era such as the Nuraghi, the Tombs of the Giants and the sacred wells. There are also ancient medieval castles.
Near the Liscia Lake and the Valkarana country Relais, there are the Nuraghe Maiori, and the Tomb of the Giants of Pascaredda. Very interesting and rich in several of these monuments is the archaeological area near Arzachena.
The Nature of Gallura
The Gallura is a beautiful area loved by foreign and Italian tourists for its variety of territory: from the sea to the countryside that offers the possibility of walking in spring or autumn immersed in the Mediterranean scrub rich in traditional scents and intense colors, where you can see also the famous millenary olive trees.
Always the sea of ??Sardinia, precisely in Gallura, is one of the most beautiful in Italy. Many know the renowned area of ??the Costa Smeralda, but also the entire southern coast between Olbia and Golfo Aranci up to Santa Teresa di Gallura offers many beaches, one different from the other and one more beautiful than the other.
