Why visit Lanusei? With its mild and temperate climate, healthy air and fairytale scenic landscapes, Lanusei has now gained a prime position as a holiday resort in Sardinia, not just because of its historic and natural treasures but also for the intense cultural life that takes place in certain periods of the year. 

For example on the first Sunday in June, the town’s Patron Saint San Giovanni Bosco is honoured with religious ceremonies, sporting events and poetry competitions. Or again the celebrations in honour of the Saints Cosma and Damiano held between 20thAugust and 27th September with processions, food and traditional dancing.

Splendid old buildings, neat squares, a breathtaking scenic backdrop; Lanusei, the capital of the Province of Ogliastra, is located in the east of Sardinia on the ridges between Mount Gennargentu and the coast, and betwixt the green of the hinterland and the deep-blue sea. It enjoys a magnificent position set in the midst of natural wonders and easily-reachable sites of great tourist and cultural interest.

Lanusei and Ogliastra true and genuine place to be. Let yourself go; be delighted by the limpid colours of its skies and beaches, its rough vegetation’s stimulating scents; taste and discover its millennial culture. Ogliastra's cuisine is both simple and refined although its great variety is discovered only by those who have the desire to immerse themselves into a timeless world.

Throughout all of Ogliastra, from north to south, it’s not easy finding fast food restaurants where you can “eat and run”. Rather, you will find places where you can stop and relax, where you can savour typical Sardinian gastronomical products, accompanied by the warmth and hospitality of its people.

If you have never tasted the liqueur made of myrtle, nor smelled the honey-perfumed seadas’ or the fragrance of pane carasau, then you are ready for this journey. The entire area has signs of the past, traces belonging to the most remote times. However, it is the most recent history that has had a significant, instrumental effect on the town, already perceptible at the end of the nineteenth-century. 

The Salesiani's role in culture, with the opening of schools and high grammar schools, had a positive social impact, thus making the town an important aggregation centre for surrounding towns. We suggest visiting the Salesiani's College, the attached church of St. John Bosco, the library and the archives building. It has been the bishop's see since 1927. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene who is honoured with big celebrations the last Sunday of July.

The other important festivities are for Don Bosco (first Sunday in June) and for the Saints Cosima and Damian (Sept. 27th), celebrated in the homonymous small, rural church. Lanusei a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea. Surrounded by a forest of oaks, it also enjoys a privileged central position and can make its own resources and those of neighbouring villages readily available to tourists.

It is the most important town for culture in Ogliastra, seat of the diocese and the religious college of the Salesiani, the law court and also the hospital. It has a wealth of cultural centres: museums, churches and monuments testify its resplendent past. Worth mentioning is the Astrological Observatory “F.Caliumi”, open to the public, situated on the top of Monte Armidda an ideal location, free from light pollution.

Various areas of the territory display a gorgeous landscape rich in wild life: wild-boars, moufflons, birds of prey, partridges and hares, etc. The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Leana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.

 

Lanusei, The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Liana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.The archaeological legacy on the territory covers all the periods from early Neolithic to Roman times.

The most significant finds are from the Nuragic era: 6 nuraghi, 2 giants’ tombs and about 14 areas where settlements are supposed to have existed. The most important archaeological and environmental site is Selene: an ancient settlement perched on a rocky outcrop with, at a brief distance, beautiful giants' tombs.

Uncontaminated nature, quiet, ancient culture are some of the most interesting aspects of the area. Forests, woods, luxuriant vineyards, mediterranean vegetation spreading its colours and parfumes along hills and mountains, where the 'green train' slowly passes by.

This is the natural habitat for mouflons, wild boars, hares and partridges. Inland Visitors attention is caught by “Tonneri”, high mountains similar to towers, the typical mountain ridges (tacchi) of Seui and Ussassai, the caves of Su Marmuri in Ulassai, deep abysses like the Golgo (Baunei), the Flumendosa with its artificial lake populated by trouts, old “Koiles” sheepfolds built with juniper tree branches, alternated to rare and unique natural monuments. Another spectacular natural place, is Su Gorropu in Urzulei.
