Where we are
The aromas and
of an incomparable landscape form the backdrop to the journey to
the Sarrabus, the region situated in the south-east of Sardinia.
Reaching it is not
difficult: leaving Cagliari, take the SS 125 which crosses the
imposing mass of the Serpeddì and the Sette Fratelli mountains,
through breathtaking views of thick and woody patches of
Mediterranean forest and the wild, bitter and primitive mountain
landscape, softened only by streams running at the bottom of
irregular and narrow gorges.
At the end of the mountain pass,
the panorama changes, flowing into a plain rich with
agriculture. At the end of this is Muravera, the most important
town in the district.
For those who arrive from Olbia following the same road – the SS
125 – the experience is not dissimilar; the whole journey is
by unforgettable views.
Muravera is located in a river
valley framed by the lakes Feraxi, Colostrai and Salina. The
fauna is typical of humid areas (pink flamingos, cavalieri
d’Italia (trans: “Italian knights”), coots, mallards) and can
only be found in a handful of places in the Mediterranean. The
town is part of an area which extends from the source of the
Flumendosa river to the beaches of Feraxi and Costa Rei, famous
for its brilliant white sands.
