Sardinia, a unique experience

Discover the province of Oristano in west Sardinia

The province of Oristano and its eponymous capital are located in the western part of Sardinia. The fairly levelled area is relatively unknown to tourists. Nevertheless, the authentic town of Bosa and the other historic villages and archaeological sites with ancient roots in this region are definitely worth a visit. Oristano has extensive vineyards where the Vernaccia grape is grown. Don’t forget to try a glass!

The fishing village of Cabras is renowned for the production of “bottarga” (roe), which is used in many Sardinian dishes.
