Vivere la campagna
The environmental features and the varied wildlife of the province of Middle Campidano can ensure any kind of amazing tours to discover lots of evocative and interesting settings. Among the widest in Europe, the golden dunes of Piscinas, offer a view of outstanding attractiveness. This naturalistic and environmental oasis hosts an uncommon fauna and flora: from the distinctive junipers, whose oldest exemplars show a twisted trunk, to the deer populating the dunal system in the wild state. Towards the hinterland, the imposing Mount Linas Massif covers most of the provincial territory with century-old, thick woodlands, springs of flowing waters in the rainy season and protected faunistic species including the mouflon, the Bonelli’s Eagle, the wild boar and the griffon. Also, hilly grounds can offer evocative landscapes, either in the gentle slopes of Marmilla or in the Giara plateau; here, small horses can be spotted among a lushing vegetation, living undisturbed in their own lands. Finally, a wide range of environments stretch out onto the plains: from wetlands, characterized by the presence of elegant and flexuous pink flamingos, to the numerous parks of the territory, where century-old plants and springs make an ideal place for wildlife enthusiasts.
