FROM NUORO TO MACOMER AND BOSA
This is an itinerary of about 50 Km., entirely
following motorway n.129, with a few detours all
along asphalt roads. The tour includes a visit to
some beautiful Romanesque and Gothic-Aragonese
churches, but also various interesting
archaeological sites, the nearby landscape, which
is varied and very attractive, such as the detour
from Bolotana going to the mountainous area next
to the northern part of Marghine.
Before reaching Macomer, the visitor should not
miss the detours to Silanus (to visit the church
of St. Lorenzo, the nuraghe Mandrone, the
fascinating complex of both the church and the
nuraghe of St.Sabina); and to Bortigali (with its
old town centre, the nuraghe Orolo and the church
and religious village of St.Maria of Saccu).
Macomer is a centre principally known for its
products, but its historical importance must not
be forgotten: one can visit the parish church of
St.Pantaleo, Mt. St.Antonio and its archaeological
ruins and the nuraghe of St.Barbara.
Continuing on this road, the visitor encounters
the village of Sindia, with its nuraghe inside the
town centre and the abbey of St. Maria of Corte,
and reaching the coast, the small town of Bosa.
