Welcome to Sardinia
Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia is a mainly mountainous region, with a vast and charming natural environment. In fact, the presence of man does not seem to affect this territory; great surfaces still preserve their natural composition, luxuriant woods with even millenary trees, small desert areas and marshes inhabited by deer, wild horses and rapacious birds.
The sea reigns over this region with its colors that migrate into the coves, along the coasts, towards the beaches and the most popular resorts. An example is the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) with Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo set as its gemstone and uniting the history and culture of ancient traditions with a joyful and colorful nightlife.
Among its wonders, Sardinia offers the visitor the Nuragic complexes scattered all over the territory. These monuments are unique to the world, testifying to an ancient culture that – though it endured from the 16th to 15th Centuries B.C. still rains rather mysterious. The Nuragic constructions communicates strength and power. Of these many constructions, the Barumini complex, in the province of Cagliari, is among the sites in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Sardinian food satisfies the most demanding palates with its simple and natural ingredients, and with its delicious recipes made with the delicate and strong local products. The main ingredient is wheat, used to make the famous pane carasau, but also the well-known malloreddus, culurgiones and fregola.
You cannot leave the island without tasting the savory porceddu, a grilled suckling pig which is served on cork trays and covered in myrtle branches. As for fish, the lobster of Alghero, the bottarga of Cabras and Carloforte tuna fish are excellent. Other exclusive fish dishes are clam soup and spaghetti with sea urchins. About the cheeses, sardinian pecorino is certainly the most renowned.
To accompany your meals, excellent wines, such as Vermentino di Gallura or Cannonau. Or their famous beer Icnusa. Myrtle liqueur, Mirto, is delicious as well.
