Blue Mines Cycle Trekking

Itinerary

Thanks to its cultural richness and varied landscape, Medio Campidano offers countless activities, including hillwalking and cycling routes to discover local environment, the history/culture of the area, sampling food-and-wine and much more.

Wildlife lovers may prefer discovering amazing paths among rugged mountains, landscapes of gentle slopes, marshy wetlands or coastlines of evocative beauty.

Cultural itineraries, on the other hand, will take visitors to picturesque corners among ancient walls, religious settlements, old rural churches, archaeological sites of Nuragic, Phoenician/Punic and Roman ages, in addition to sites of industrial archaeology throughout the mining areas.

Not to be missed, the food-and-wine is closely linked to local folklore; they offer the pleasure to taste delicious dishes, while taking a chance to hand down a century-old culture and flavours.
