The town sits in the heart of the flat part of the Marmilla, between the Giara of Gesturi and that of Siddi. Turri offers a variety of panoramas: in the spring you’ll get the green of the cultivated fields, in summer the intense colour of the earth. The town shares a ranking as prime saffron (Sardinia’s ‘red gold’) production area with the town of San Gavino Monreale. The town boasts little more than 400 residents and consists of an historic centre made up of characteristic houses with central courtyards and small vegetable patches, all surrounded by high walls. Most of the houses open to the street with wide entranceways, and while some of these date to the 1800s, most of them were erected in the XX century.
