The Geo-Marine Park of Capo Carbonara, the Regional Park of the Sette Fratelli and the Geominerary Park of Sardinia between Muravera and Villaputzu, represent three diverse realities, each with their own unique charm.
For enthusiasts of the sea, the Geo-Marine Park offers enchanting submerged sceneries between granite rocks and small caves, covered with beautiful clusters of yellow anemones, surrounded by red coral and immense sprawls of Neptune grass.
Here a wide variety of fauna lives undisturbed: octopus, shrimp, white bream, mullets, snappers, yellowtails, Mediterranean eels, lobster, sea bass, gilt-head bream, and many other species are well looked after with precise rules of access, navigation and fishing throughout the area. Snorkeling on these sea-beds will be an unforgettable experience.
The Parco dei Sette Fratelli (Seven Brothers Park), located in the Sarrabus region, extends from the territories of Castiadas to San Vito and Villasimius and represents one of the biggest green areas of the Island. With an extensive area covered in oak forest, sea pines, junipers, arbutus and myrtle. An incredible bouquet of Mediterranean perfumes in which wild boars and deer live undisturbed. You can explore this area of natural beauty by bike or on foot.
The Geominerary Park tells a piece of Sardinian mining history. A history that dates back to the time of the Phoenician and Punic invasions that reaches the 1800’s when silver mining became intense in the region, until the first half of the 20thcentury.
The remains of this ancient activity are found in Villaputzu (Baccu Locci Mine) and San Vito (Monte Narba Mine).
