Why visit Lanusei?
With its mild and temperate climate, healthy air and fairytale scenic landscapes, Lanusei has now gained a prime position as a holiday resort in Sardinia, not just because of its historic and natural treasures but also for the intense cultural life that takes place in certain periods of the year. For example on the first Sunday in June, the town’s Patron Saint San Giovanni Bosco is honoured with religious ceremonies, sporting events and poetry competitions. Or again the celebrations in honour of the Saints Cosma and Damiano held between 20thAugust and 27th September with processions, food and traditional dancing.
Splendid old buildings, neat squares, a breathtaking scenic backdrop; Lanusei, the capital of the Province of Ogliastra, is located in the east of Sardinia on the ridges between Mount Gennargentu and the coast, and betwixt the green of the hinterland and the deep-blue sea. It enjoys a magnificent position set in the midst of natural wonders and easily-reachable sites of great tourist and cultural interest.
Lanusei and Ogliastra true and genuine place to be. Let yourself go; be delighted by the limpid colours of its skies and beaches, its rough vegetation’s stimulating scents; taste and discover its millennial culture. Ogliastra's cuisine is both simple and refined although its great variety is discovered only by those who have the desire to immerse themselves into a timeless world.
Throughout all of Ogliastra, from north to south, it’s not easy finding fast food restaurants where you can “eat and run”. Rather, you will find places where you can stop and relax, where you can savour typical Sardinian gastronomical products, accompanied by the warmth and hospitality of its people.

Lanusei: a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea. Surrounded by a forest of oaks, it also enjoys a privileged central position and can make its own resources and those of neighbouring villages readily available to tourists.
It is the most important town for culture in Ogliastra, seat of the diocese and the religious college of the Salesiani, the law court and also the hospital. It has a wealth of cultural centres: museums, churches and monuments testify its resplendent past. Worth mentioning is the Astrological Observatory “F. Caliumi”, open to the public, situated on the top of Monte Armidda, an ideal location, free from light pollution.
Various areas of the territory display a gorgeous landscape rich in wild life: wild-boars, moufflons, birds of prey, partridges and hares, etc. The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Liana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.The archaeological legacy on the territory covers all the periods from early Neolithic to Roman times.
The most significant finds are from the Nuragic era: 6 nuraghi, 2 giants’ tombs and about 14 areas where settlements are supposed to have existed. The most important archaeological and environmental site is Selene: an ancient settlement perched on a rocky outcrop with, at a brief distance, beautiful giants 'tombs'.
Tourism in Sardinia is a relatively new phenomenon and until recent times there was little choice but to stay in modest inns or private houses, especially away from the largest towns and a handful of old, well-known seaside resorts. Today the quality of Sardinian tourist accommodation has reached the same high standards found in the rest of Italy (thanks in part to important events such as the establishment of a Sardinian tourist board in 1952, and changes in regional laws starting in the 1960s which incentivized investment from individuals and large companies).
The coastal areas are not the only places driving the growth of tourism in Sardinia, with many areas once exclusively used for farming and grazing now offering fantastic holiday accommodation, such as Fonni and Oliena. The number of different holiday possibilities is countless, stretching from your traditional hotel, to simpler, often more rural options like bed and breakfasts or agritourism farmhouses.
Another possibility for those who want to immerse themselves in the mediterranean scrub and breathtaking landscapes of the Sardinian countryside is the campsite, particularly recommended to lovers of walking. A fantastic alternative to hotels or resorts is the self-catering holiday home, many of which have swimming pools and/or are right by the sea. If you are looking for a beach holiday you will soon notice the different characters of the various coastal areas.
The Emerald Coast (Costa Smeralda) and the famous seaside towns near Olbia (including Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo) are very popular among the rich and famous, and whilst their 'exclusiveness' is questionable, they ooze style and sophistication. In contrast areas such as Santa Margherita di Pula, Porto Conte, Baia Sardinia and Villasimius are popular destinations for package holidays, whereas areas like Alghero, Santa Teresa di Gallura, La Maddalena, San Teodoro, Cala Gonone, Golfo Aranci and Muravera are popular among more traditional, independent tourists.
In addition to these well known destinations there are many minor coastal towns and villages where you can find great accommodation at very good prices, especially in agritourism farmhouses, bed and breakfasts, and hotels, the rising stars of Sardinian tourism. The early days when Sardinian hotels were known for their lack of professionalism, offset only by the beauty of the island and the friendliness of the islanders, have long since passed, even in the lesser known places.
Despite the growth of tourism in Sardinia the countryside retains its wild, uncontaminated beauty, and visitors always enjoy a completely authentic experience, never a manufactured one.
