Monti

Description

A municipality in the province of Olbia-Tempio, located in the South of the Gallura area, in the hinterland of the Costa Smeralda, the village is situated at the foot of mountain chain Limbara, in a dominant position that overlooks the wide green valley below, rich of cork trees and vineyards which produce a fine wine. The municipality includes an agro-wildlife oasis of great importance, inhabited by different animals and highlighted by suggestive paths and streams.
The area of the mountains, like the entire Gallura region, was inhabited since the Neolithic Ages and there are important pieces of evidences that attest the presence of small settlements since the Nuragic Ages. The territories were conquered by the Carthaginians, before, and by the Romans, later. In medieval times the town was an important trading centre: the Pisani used to buy here wood, leather and cereals. The town was acquired by the Malaspina and in the XIV century, it was incorporated in the Giudicato (County) of Arborea. Conquered by the Aragonese, it was ceded in fief to the Deffenu and from these to the Farina, that ruled until the abolition of feudalism.

Attractions:
- the Sanctuary of St. Paul the Hermit, a beautiful and simple country church built of stone and recently restored. The present building dates from the XVII century, but the original church structure was consecrated much earlier. The façade is very linear with an arched portal and a gable roof. The linearity is only interrupted by a frame that draws a gable and a half-moon window;
- the Parish Church of San Gavino, located in the town, which features a gable roof and XVII century belfry, built before the church;
- the main historic town center;
- the Nuraghe Logu
