This excursion takes place in Sedilo, here we can visit the territory beyond the opposite bank of the Tirso.

From the equestrian center, we will reach the river and will cross it, in one of the fords used by shepherds to go to the pasture, when there were not bridges to cross. We’ll go up along the path to reach the point of “Santu Nigola”. Hence our eyes embrace a vast panorama: the Tirso valley, the chain Marghine and Goceano, the mountains of Nuoro; and across a breathtaking view on ‘Omodeo and the villages that surround the lake shore. Descend along the dirt track that will take us towards the gorge carved by the river thyrsus, with overhanging rocks. Among cistus bushes and mastic, cork trees and olive trees, there appears Domus de Janas, and millstones used in ancient times for pressing grapes.
