DescriptionF.A.Q. Section

The Nuragic village of Tiscali (Dorgali and Oliena)

Located between the two communes of Dorgali and Oliena, the Nuragic village of Tiscali is one of the most famous excursion destinations in Sardinia. Thanks to its isolated location in the wilderness and due to its archaeological, natural and geological significance, it definitely features at the top of the list of all Sardinian travel guides.

Its history began about 900.000 years ago, exactly at the border where the Oliena and Dorgali Supramonte regions meet, on the 518 metres high summit of Mount Tiscali, when a huge and hidden natural cave had its vault collapsing, thus generating a secret basin accessible only through a crack in the rocky walls.

Many aeons later, sometime between the 18th and 15th centuries BC, the indigenous Nuragic populations settled down this sinkhole that created a protected and hospitable environment effectively concealing the village of huts built in its midst from the prying eyes of enemies and invaders.

Our trekking tour to Tiscali Nuragic village

  • The most famous excursion in Sardinia
  • Hiking in the midst of the wilderness
  • Impressive sights and scenery 500 metres above sea level
  • An archaeological site unique in the world
  • A secret botanical area

Today with Jebel Sardinia we can now follow the ancient ruts that coalmen furrowed more than two hundred years ago and that will lead us to the Nuragic village of Tiscali. This one-day trekking will have us snaking our way across the dense woods of the Lanaitho Valley and along the high limestone walls eroded over millennia by wind and water.

We will pass the narrow crack of Sa Curtigia, which is the only access point to a series of spectacular sights extending all the way down to the Corrasi mountain range. We will then enter the collapsed cave to visit the archaeological site and the natural botanical area made up of rare species, such as the terebinth and the three-lobed maple tree that the special microclimate in the basin allowed to grow.
