North of Nuoro

North of Nuoro, the forgotten and lonely countryside harbours a couple of wonderful archaeological sites: Complesso Nuragico Romanzesu and Fonte Sacra Su Tempiesu. They’re not easy to get to – even with a car you’ll be wondering where on earth you’re heading – but persevere and you’ll be amply rewarded. Few people make it out here, and there are no better places to experience the mystery and isolation of Sardinia’s silent interior.
