Sardinian land and nature

Discover the most beautiful landscapes of Sardinia riding a little steam train which, whilst being slow and not particularly comfortable, it will allow You to travel through the wild, uncontaminated interior of the island. This railway, today a tourist train route known as the “Trenino Verde” (Little Green Train), was built in the late 1800s to link the interior of the island with the main cities and ports. The over 600 km-long railway crosses some fascinating, wild areas of Sardiniaincluding stretches of landscape not reached by any roads. Many writers rode this train to explore the island’s interior, including D.H. Lawrence.

 

The Trenino Verde, the “little green train” that runs for 100 miles from the east coast to his overnight stop at Mandas, is a roller-coaster ride through a convoluted jumble of mountains and meadows that must rank as one of the world’s great small railways. The name was coined by the World Wildlife Foundation because it travels through some of the greenest, most sparsely populated parts of the island. Beyond it lies a little known treasure – a nature reserve where the last wild horses of Europe roam free with boars and wildcats on a high basaltic plateau. Lawrence took the direct railway from Cagliari to Mandas, but the more circuitous Trenino Verde begins its laborious ascent from a pink railway station by a little harbour filled with fishing boats in the port of Arbatax. You will discover the beautiful Cagliari, with its colonnade streets, the castle and the wonderful views of the sea.

 

A journey in the Trenino Verde is an incredible experience, and it is the best way to explore the timelesswild hinterland of Sardinia, where little has changed in hundreds of years.

 

Sail along the coast, away from the glamour and the glitz of the mega yacht, and discover beaches and semi-deserted villages, almost forgotten. Visit the Barumini archaeological site, dating from the Bronze Age, and declared a World Heritage Site. This is the best example of “nuraghi”, a special type of defensive structure you will not find anywhere else in the world!

BARUMINI ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE

During the late 2nd millennium B.C. in the Bronze Age, a special type of defensive structure known as nuraghi (for which no parallel exists anywhere else in the world) developed on the island of Sardinia. The complex consists of circular defensive towers in the form of truncated cones built of dressed stone, with corbel-vaulted internal chambers. The complex at Barumini, which was extended and reinforced in the first half of the 1st millennium under Carthaginian pressure, is the finest and most complete example of this remarkable form of prehistoric architecture.
