First day – Artisans from Macomer – Sardinia
My craft tour starts from Macomer, in the province of Nuoro, where I have the chance to meet artisans and restaurateurs driven by a strong passion for they job and the love for Sardinian traditions.
Macomer’s ancient origins are plenty documented by the settlements of Nuragic period – situated where nowadays the urban area is located – and by different archeological areas in the neighbourhood, some of which are considered the most important of the island.
Tamuli archeological complex is a stop recommended also by Tripadvisor travellers: just from reading the reviews, we can be impressed by the nuraghe’s beauty and the particular ambience derived from the village and the graves immersed in the green hills.
A visit in Macomer can also inspire trekking fanatics and nature lovers, through the visit of Mount Sant’Antonio (Saint Anthony), characterized by a thick forest and provided for picnics. Once reached the summit, it is possible to admire the wonderful scenery and to visit Saint Anthony sanctuary and a nuraghe surrounded by the vegetation.
If you are interested in a really suggestive visit at Mount Saint Anthony, it is suggested to be present on 13 June at Saint Anthony of Padua feast, when thousands of faithfuls from all the island are reunited in nature.
After a stroll to know the village, it’s time to have a rest and I set off towards Casa Castori, a historic building reproduced as more than a B&b by Castori sisters.
