This Marmilla region is a sub-region of Sardinia strategically placed in the crossroads of the fertile plains of the two Campidani (low farming lands), along the historical routes between the golfs of Cagliari and that of Oristano, privileged landing sea ports of ancient seafaring populations.
This place, close to the mining areas of the massif Linas mountins from one side to Mount’ Arci on the other, has always been a mandatory passage on the way to Gennargentu, situated halfway between the Campidano and the Barbagie. Its characterized by green, gentile rolling hills crossed by many waterways, the territory features many natural wonders.
For centuries, the Marmilla has been inhabited. Besides the many Paleolithic traces being present, contained are many Domus De Janas, Tombs of Giants and over 120 Nuraghi of which are mostly all visitable. The Punic and Roman settlements are otherwise so numerous and scattered all over and sometimes even overlapping previous cultures.
