Back in time

Through the centuries Sardinia has been occupied by many different people. The nuraghe and Domus de Janas which dot the island are the oldest traces of prehistoric human settlement in Sardinia.

Sardinia has been populated in various waves of emigration from prehistory until recent times. Prehistoric tribes have left impressive monuments, such as the Neolithic “Domus de Janas” and megalithic “nuraghes”, tower-fortresses made of many layers of stones. As time passed the Phoenicians and Carthaginians (550 BC) conquered Sardinia, followed by the Romans, the Vandals, the Byzantines and, in the 11th century, the Saracens.
Early 8th century BC the Phoenicians founded several cities…

Sardinia has a diverse landscape; beautiful coastlines with numerous white sandy beaches, bays and clear blue waters contrast with the inland’s rugged landscape. Flat coasts merge into undulating hills and into lush mountains in central Sardinia. The highest mountains, the Punta la Marmora (1834 m.) and the Bruncu Spina (1829 m.) are a part of the Gennargentu. This mountain area in central-southern Sardinia encompasses the Gerrei mountain range in the south and the mountain Monte di Alba in the north. The Iglesiente and the Capoterra mountains border the southwestern part of the Gennargentu.
Sardinia has more than 1800 kilometres of coastline, which consist of…

Traditional Sardinia

The Sardinians love their language, traditions and customs. Colourful and of original forms, the clothes worn by Sardinians during local festivities are a clear symbol of their love for their culture.

Sardinia has a very low population density. Most of the 1.644.000 inhabitants live in (the vicinity of) the cities.
Italian has been the official language on the island since the beginning of the 18th century. However, the island has its own language as well; Sardinian. Furthermore, each region has its own dialect. Sardinian, a distinct branch of the Romance language family, is still spoken by a large part of the population. Especially in the more secluded mountain villages...

Pane, pasta and dolci

In Sardinia good food, preferably cooked with local ingredients, is of the utmost importance. Sardinians love to sit down and enjoy the tasty dishes of La Mamma together with friends or family.

The Sardinian cuisine is a fairly simple Mediterranean one, which focuses on the use of local ingredients such as bread, milk, cheese, meat and fish. Sardinians start their day with a simple breakfast which consists of coffee or milk with a sweet bun. At ca. 13.00h they sit down for an extensive “pranzo” (lunch). Dinner (“la cena”) is relatively light, since they often skip the pasta dish. Like all Italians Sardinians too love sharing their meals with friends and family.
The famous Pane carasau is Sardinia’s famous traditional flatbread. Since the production of this bread is fairly laborious, the Sardinians prefer leaving it to the bakers. Pane carasau can…
