Watch how the sea changes from pale blue to
deep blue and turquoise in colour. Enjoy the rugged basalt coastline
peppered with the nests of cormorants and shags. Immerse yourself in
the strongly-perfumed Mediterranean vegetation: rosemary, lentisk,
myrtle, helichrisum, cistus and thyme.
See the small natural pools of water, the remains of the tenacious
working of the seawaves, blown by the maelstrom breaking onto the lava
coast: the green lagoons teeming with fish. Sunbathe on extra-fine sand
scattered by the wind to form desert dunes or take refuge from the sun
in green oasis dotted with dwarf palm trees.
In the hinterland, a bit further off, see the marshes with wonderful
waltzing flamingos and soaring marsh harriers. And maybe you will see
the rarely-sighted purple gullinule. Or the Audouin's gull.
You can visit antique ruins, which witnessed past civilizations. They,
too, appreciated the natural landing places of this coast on the way to
the Balearic Islands and Spain, an extraordinary evocation of the past.
Admire immense expanses of harvested field and fisheries.
Explore an incredible piece of history: the Judicate of Arborea,
Eleanor, a female judge who is perhaps the most prominent character of
the Sardinian Middle Ages. She was an extreme defendant of the island's
national independence and provided the experience of government by a
woman, probably the only one in the whole of Europe at that time.
This is our starting point and we believe it is
no small thing.
And it will be only the beginning!
