STROLLING THROUGH NUORO AND OTHER TYPICAL
CENTRES OF THE NUORESE
Nuoro, the capital of the Nuorese region, offers
various and interesting opportunities to stop for
an intense visit. The speleological and
archaeological museum, the museum-house of Grazia
Deledda, the museum showing the life and the
customs of the Sardinian peoples, are just a few
examples. Mount Ortobene surely deserves a visit,
in order to admire beautiful views and the small
church of La Solitudine.
Leaving Nuoro and travelling towards the north,
but not going very far, it is possible to visit
the small village of Lollove and its church of St.
Maria Maddalena. Continuing on this road, the
visitor reaches the village of Orune and its
nuraghic well-temple of Su Tempiesu, the village
of Bitti, with its old town centre and the forest
of Sos Littos, and Lula with its sanctuary
dedicated to St. Francesco. Near Lula it is
possible to visit the fascinating, impervious area
of Mount Albo, a calcareous-dolomitic chain
ranging for about 20 Km., rich in caves,
underground rivers and ruins of megalithic
Going from south of Nuoro, one finds Oliena,
another village typical of Barbagia, where it is
possible to visit the springs of Su Gologone, the
area of Supramonte, the valley of Lanaitto, Mt.
Tiscali and Mt. Corrasi.
These above-areas require at least two days for a
quiet relaxing visit.
