Welcome to Montiferru
North and inland of the Sinis Peninsula, western Sardinia's landscape is dominated by the wooded slopes of Montiferru. Reaching its highest point at Monte Urtigu summit (1050m), this vast volcanic massif is a beautiful and largely uncontaminated area of ancient forests, verdant pastures, natural springs and small market towns. Lonely roads snake over rocky peaks covered in a green down of cork, chestnut, oak and yew trees, while falcons and buzzards float on warm air currents overhead. Mouflon and Sardinian deer are slowly being introduced back to their forest habitats after coming close to extinction.
