At the feet of the lovely park of Mt. Arci, blessed with the obsidian reserves that provided it with its economic importance, the town sits on a plain cut through by various rivers. Part of the area is home to cultivated fields, while the other is covered in Mediterranean brush. Uras counts less than 3,000 inhabitants on the border between southern and central Campidano. It is steeped in rural traditions and excels in textiles. The historic centre is graced with traditional buildings made of rough unbaked clay bricks, homes that encircle the large Baroque (1664-82) church of Santa Maria Maddalena. A square bell tower with domed octagonal top and clock was erected next to it in the early XVIII century. The patron saint is celebrated in late July.
