Finding yourself in Gallura
Known as Baddula in ancient Sardinian dialect, Gallura is in the Northeast of Sardinia where you will find both mountains and seashores. The granite rocks are a trademark of this landscape, with their surfaces levigated by winds, rains and the sea that give us beautiful sculptures, sometimes bizarre but always unique. Nearby we have a beautiful Mediterranean spot of mastic trees, rockrose, strawberry trees, myrtle and so on. This is where we find various expanses of oak tree and cork tree forests.
