Tortoli and Arbatax: These are the best well known towns of the Ogliastra area, thanks partly to the presence of the commercial and tourist port and thanks also to its rather intriguing name: it derives from an Arabic word meaning "fourteenth tower", for the Saracen tower which overlooks the seafront.
Arbatax was born as a village of fishermen, many of whom came from the nearby island of Ponza, and it is from fishing that it earned its biggest fortunes, thanks to the significant variety of fish and crustaceans in the area.
Arbatax is placed on the headland of Bellavista, and is surrounded by a natural scenery of bays and inlets which make it completely unique and fascinating. Starting from the Rocce Rosse (Red Rocks), famous throughout the world for their particular colour of porphyry, then the splendid Cala Moresca, on the eastern side of the town, and continuing towards the Telis, the Bay of Portofrailis and San Gemiliano - now residential areas built up using some interesting architecture - it is possible to admire different colours and landscapes, all both striking and enchanting.
Today, Tortolì is the most important centre in the entire Ogliastra region. Its economy, once based on agriculture, today concentrates on the service industry, thanks to the presence of the Arbatax harbour and to the new airport.
Of them all, the tourism sector has grown the most, transforming the area into a sought-after tourist destination.
In the city centre, you'll find the ex-cathedral, the church of St. Andrew, that dates back to the XVIII Century and is in Baroque style. Also very interesting is the interior of the church, including three aisles where it's possible to admire numerous works of art and a big, marble altar.
The seaside is quite famous for its "red rocks". Equally famous is the "Blues" festival that takes place every summer at the beach.
The area also offers the Spanish Tower and the Tower of San Gemiliano, built in the XVI Century by the Spanish as a defence against frequent piratical raids.
To be noted is the San Salvatore park where you'll admire a nuragic village, a tomba dei giganti (giants cave) and some menhir dating back to a period between the XVIII and the XIX Centuries
