The spectacular natural location of Calagonone is best grasped by coming from Dorgali: at the exit of a tunnel that pierces the bastion of the Bardia and Tului mountains you pass from a mountain landscape strongly marked by roughness, spiers, jagged ridges, to a grandiose seascape with infinite horizons towards the blue waters and bounded to the ground by a fantastic backdrop of mountains, woods of holm oaks, valleys.
