Quiet and barren granite hills shaped over centuries by the wind and rain, valleys full of oak trees that cut the horizon, and streams that come together into pools and ponds. That is the gorgeous scenario of punta Senalonga, a promontory that dominates the high plain of Buddusò, home to a splendid example of a Nuragic sanctuary, the sos Nurattolos. This most remarkable archaeological treasure, located in the Alà dei Sardi region, is dedicated to water worship and was discovered in the second half of the XX century. It dates to between 1600 and 900 BC. To get to it you have to pass through the little ‘granite’ town on the border between Gallura and the Nuoro region.
