Its territory, wedged between sea and mountain, offers a vast array of unique landscapes. A paradise of remarkable beauty situated along the eastern side of Sardinia, where nature is at its best.
Lanusei is the most important town in Sardinia's Ogliastra region and is situated in a charming position atop Gennargentu ridges that slope towards the coast. Its territory is known for its environment, including a natural amphitheatre in which its forested areas, archaeological aspects and the town's most important monuments are located.
The Selene Forest is surely the most visited tourist destination. Lush ilex and oak spread out over a large part of the area where true botanical rarities are concentrated along with wildlife species. There are also a few refreshments areas for visitors.
The location can also be reached by the 'Trenino verde' (green train) which, for the most part of the year, allows visitors to enjoy the healthy air, typical of the area. Numerous springs with pure, fresh water that supply the nearby Alto Flumendosa Lake are also present. A Nuraghe, Tomba dei Giganti, sacred well and other pre-historic objects area hidden by the vegetation.
We also recommend visits to Mount Armidda, well known due to the presence of an Astronomy Observatory, and Mounts Tricoli and Paulis where Punic-Roman evidence has been discovered.
The entire area has signs of the past, traces belonging to the most remote times. However, it is the most recent history that has had a significant, instrumental effect on the town, already perceptible at the end of the nineteenth-century. The Salesiani's role in culture, with the opening of schools and high grammar schools, had a positive social impact, thus making the town an important aggregation centre for surrounding towns.
We suggest visiting the Salesiani's College, the attached church of St. John Bosco, the library and the archives building. It has been the bishop's see since 1927. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene who is honoured with big celebrations the last Sunday of July.
The other important festivities are for Don Bosco (first Sunday in June) and for the Saints Cosima and Damian (Sept. 27th), celebrated in the homonymous small, rural church.
Lanusei a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea. Surrounded by a forest of oaks, it also enjoys a privileged central position and can make its own resources and those of neighbouring villages readily available to tourists.
It is the most important town for culture in Ogliastra, seat of the diocese and the religious college of the Salesiani, the law court and also the hospital.
It has a wealth of cultural centres: museums, churches and monuments testify its resplendent past. Worth mentioning is the Astrological Observatory “F.Caliumi”, open to the public, situated on the top of Monte Armidda an ideal location, free from light pollution.
Various areas of the territory display a gorgeous landscape rich in wild life: wild-boars, moufflons, birds of prey, partridges and hares, etc. The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Leana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.
The archaeological legacy on the territory covers all the periods from early Neolithic to Roman times. The most significant finds are from the Nuragic era: 6 nuraghi, 2 giants’ tombs and about 14 areas where settlements are supposed to have existed.
The most important archaeological and environmental site is Seleni, an ancient settlement perched on a rocky outcrop with, at a brief distance, beautiful giants’ tombs.
