A pleasant, welcoming mountain town for which the surrounding territory is named. It is part of Sardinia’s blue zone: one of five areas in the world where lifespans are above average. Between 1996 and 2016 twenty centenarians have been recorded here. Seulo is the main town of the homonymous sub region of Barbagia, located on the border of southern Sardinia and Nuoro. The town, with its roughly 800 inhabitants, stretches at the foot of Monte Perdedu (1400 m), which is separated from Gennargentu massif by the Flumendosa river. If you follow the course of the river, it will take you past deep gorges, valleys covered by holly oaks and Mediterranean shrubs, limestone cliffs, springs, small lakes and rapids. Over the millennia, its waters have carved karstic caves inhabited since prehistoric times in the Addolì Forest. Some examples include Sa Ruta ‘e i Bitulleris and Sa Omu ‘e Janas, with a large hall full of stalagmites and stalactites. The most famous and characteristic spot is Su Stampu ‘e Su Turrunu, on the border with Sadali: a “water landscape” composed of a sinkhole, cave and a spring with a waterfall and small lake.
