The Judges, the Pisans, the Genoese, the Aragonese, the Malaspina and the Doria families built dozens of fortresses to defend their dominions on the island, and Castle of Burgos is the one with the richest historical memories and legendary tales. It takes its name from the pretty village at its foot, but it is also known as the Castle of Goceano, the historical territory that the fortress dominates from 650 metres above sea level. Perched on a cliff at the foot of Mount Rasu, completely isolated and visible from afar, practically impregnable, it once controlled the territory. Today it exudes a charm linked to the Sardinian Middle Ages, to court life and battles, assassins and betrayals, nobles and sovereigns, charming women and unscrupulous bandits.
