Sardinia is the second largest Italian island in the Mediterranean.
It has almost 2,000 km of coastline, sandy beaches, forests and inland mountainous areas that are perfect for mountain biking and hiking.
Its landscape that is different in the different sub-regions of Sardinia is characterized by thousands of nuraghi - mysterious buildings of the Bronze Age stone with the characteristic shape of a truncated conical tower similar to a medieval tower (outside) and a beehive (inside of).
At least 1500 years before Christ, while throughout Italy and almost all of Europe, the local population were still building huts and palafitte (pile dwellings); in Sardinia over 7000 Nuraghi,although archaeologists believe that there were originally more than 10,000, began to be built.
A Truncated conical tower or more made up of giant stones joined one above the other which at that time were the highest buildings in the world after the Egyptian pyramids.
They are one of the main symbols of Sardinia and its distinctive culture: the Nuragic civilization.
