Barì Sardo is a farming village on the basalt plateau of Teccu ‘e Su Crastu, surrounded by rolling hills clothed in vineyards and fruit orchards. The area bears several traces of its ancient settlers, including the nuraghe Sellersu and the domus de janas (chamber tombs) of Pizzu’e Monti and Funtana Su Rettore, on the Su Pranu hills.

The old town centre still has a number of the old rural houses and farmsteads, plus Spanish towers, ancient sheep pens and villas. The village is famous for its hand-weaving traditions: carpets, tapestries, blankets and linen fabrics.

The religious festivals dedicated to the Beata Vergine di Monserrato and to Saints Michele and Girolamo, with their street processions are especially fascinating. Both festivals are held in September; make sure you also visit the parish church of Nostra Signora di Monserrato, in the heart of town. The second Sunday of July the Festival de Su Nenneri is held, to celebrate San Giovanni Battista.

Barisardo is a small village of about 4000 inhabitants situated on the inner part of the coast. Its position is due to the continuous raids by pirates (quite typical during the last centuries) of the sea over which this town overlooks. Submerged in Mediterranean vegetation, the territory of Barisardo has been chosen as a place to settle since ancient times and in particular during the Nuraghic Age, as evidenced by the presence of 14 Nuraghe.

However, there is other evidence of previously dated human presence. With the oncoming of Christianity, numerous villages arouse near places of worship. In the following centuries, a settlement called Villa di Bari (the words have a Mesopotamian origin and mean marsh)was created. The current name dates back to the Sardinian-Piedmont Kingdom. The suffix "sardo" was added to avoid any confusion with the city of Bari in the south of Italy. Foreign domination over the whole area was quite numerous including the Romans, Saracens, Vandals, Pisans and Spanish.

At that time, the sea was a real danger because of the incessant raids against the local population. The many Towers distributed over its 9 km. of coastline are evidence of this great threat. Today the sea, thanks to its beauty and transparency, is a real blessing for the local economy. As a matter of fact, it won the Blue Flag award given to the most beautiful and brightest coasts in Italy. This component has greatly boosted the tourism industry.

The sea also provides high quality, gastronomic products along with local farming derivatives that have allowed Barisardo to become a leading centre for traditional cooking. The country festival that takes place in August and during which visitors have the chance to sample different, typical, local products is quite noteworthy.

location and surroundings of object

The beach situated near the Spanish Tower of Barì is part of the long Marina di Bari Sardo and has a base made up of very coarse, multicoloured sand and rock-cliffs near the tower. It is around 8 kilometres in length and 100 metres wide, and is divided into two parts by the rocky promontory on which the tower rises. A part of the beach is made up of coarse sand, like grains of rice, slightly ochre in colour, while the other part is made up of round pebbles.

The beach is sunny right up to sunset, and the sea is always calm with little wind. The surroundings are magnificent. Its waters are of an intense changing blue due to the plays of light created by the sun reflected on the sandy seabed. As it is windy, it is the ideal spot for surfers and is much loved by scuba fishing enthusiasts.

To say something on Sardinia which hasn’t been said or wrote before is a hard job, especially in such a short presentation, so what we are left to do is try to summarize some impressions after a journey. Braudel said that the Mediterranean Sea is first of all a sea closed between mountains. If we invert the elements, we might as well use this definition for Sardinia: at first sight, in fact, the island looks like an enormous mountain massif emerging from the sea. And it actually is.

But this statement goes beyond the geographical aspect: the particular morphology, the central position in the “liquid continent” and the distance from the dry land are all primary aspects which contributed to its complex history and to the preservation of the peculiar elements which made the second biggest island of the Mediterranean a world of its own. This special bond between territory, history and culture is something you can really perceive when you find yourself on the place, even if just for a short period.

A good way to discover Sardinia is taking advice from the local people: in this way you will learn about feasts and places which are now appreciated destinations for picnics or daily excursions, but that are still ignored by the official tourist guides. And after all, it’s not that bad if you make your own discoveries.

As for nature, Sardinia is sometimes a wild and harsh land, sometimes a soft and sweet one, but always beautiful. Archaeological finds of different ages are spread almost everywhere, sometimes intertwining and fusing with the natural elements, generating unique patterns. From the folkloristic point of view, almost every county is a state of its own, a great benefit in terms of variety of cakes, breads, cheese exc.

Some of the main cities like Cagliari, a beautiful and lively port city, or Alghero, a Catalan outpost on the Sardinian territory and possibly the most beautiful city on the island, have lately become beloved destinations for weekend breaks, thanks to a network of comfortable and cheap flight connections. But they are also good for a longer stay, leaving time to visit the surroundings. And then, of course, the sea.

The coasts of Sardinia are considered among the most beautiful of the Mediterranean Sea, with the cleanest waters, and this is certainly the first reason why every year millions of tourists choose them for their holidays. However, the best dimension to enjoy a region as Sardinia is not the classic steady vacation in a cheerful seaside location (and who knows why these locations are all “cheerful” then?).

The real way to enjoy the island, in fact, is the itinerant journey, to be divided into small legs, maybe taking the “cheerful location” as the starting point for the discovery of the inland and the numerous hidden corners of uncontaminated coast.

Sardinia is full of wonderful roads, often desert even in summer, which offer breathtaking panoramas behind every curve. This all sounds like a typical American road movie, but rest assured that these sceneries are really worth it, since in a space of few kilometres are concentrated the most variable landscapes. To quote an Italian film by Gabriele Salvatores, “in the Mediterranean there is always a village hiding behind the sheets, which deserves to be discovered.”


Barisardo is situated 4 km from the sea; the town was developed inland to avoid the frequent pirate raids. The conical Torre (Tower) was ordered to be built by the King of Spain in the 17th century as a defence against such raids. Situated between the hills of Su Planu, Pitzu e Monti, and the Teccu plateau, the countryside surrounding the town is characterised by centuries-old olive and almond trees and Mediterranean macchia. as well as several domus de janas and many nuraghi.

The seaside, which extends for 10km, starts at Cea and continues with the area known as Teccu, formed of basalt outcrops formed by the eruptions of an ancient volcano. The coastline, with its beautiful sea bed, has long sandy beaches, and in the middle are the rocks on which the Torre of Barisardo is built. In the town, the Chiesa Patronale, with its balustraded steps of multicoloured finely inlaid marble and dating from the 6th or 7th century, is of particular architectural interest.

Ogliastra, with the beauty of its coastline and mountainous interior, is Sardinia's most recently-discovered tourist destination. This corner of the island, bounded by the mountains and the sea, offers an unlimited number of unique attractions for visitors.

A paradise of remarkable beauty situated on the east coast of Sardinia: here Nature offers the best of itself. The name Ogliastra is said to come from the Olivastri, olive trees, found all over this area, though others say it's derived from the Agugliastra (or Pedra Longa), the limestone monolith on the coastline of Baunei.

Ogliastra's coastline contains some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches of Sardinia: oases of sand wedged between the sea and the surrounding cliffs. Ogliastra is actually one of the Mediterranean's most charming marine landscapes. Starting from the north, we come to sandy bays (cale) reachable only by boat or on foot, such as the famous Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritzé; further south we find interesting beaches such as those at Tancau, Orrì, Cea, the Marinas di Barisardo and Cardedu, Coccorrocci and the Golfo di Sarrala.

The other magical side to Ogliastra is the Nature, which is still unspoilt and which gradually changes as you climb over the hills to arrive at the mountains of the Gennargentu, whose varied landscapes and rare beauty are very satisfying to gaze upon. A land which is best appreciated by the attentive and curious observer, rather than the normal tourist. In terms of history and archaeology, the whole area is very worthwhile to visit, with many Nuraghi, Domus de Janas, Fonti Sacre, Tombe dei Giganti and Menhir.

On foot, by bike, on horseback, by car or 4WD you can follow trekking routes to discover places which you won't easily forget. If, on the other hand, you wish to see the splendid Ogliastra coastline from the sea, there are boats to take you there.

Only the combination of sights and scents manages to fully describe Ogliastra's magic and harmony. You can't say you've really visited Sardinia if you don't spend at least a few days in Ogliastra !
