Sardinia is an island you cannot ignore. After visiting it, you will carry a memory in your heart that leaves you with nostalgia and a strange sensation, veiled with a sad yearning for something missing; it’s the Sardinia sickness. The scenery of this land seems to want to cherish heritage of myths and legends. This is not only a land of NURAGHI (pre-historic Sardinian round towers) and megalithic tombs, remains of a glorious and fascinating past, it is still motherland of shepherds, modern representatives of the ancient king-shepherds of the Nurahic society; it is also a land of beaches, famous the world over, which boast fine sands and a sea of wonderful transparency.
Unlike its sister island, Sicily, which absorbed and gave way to centuries of cultural colonisations, Sardinia has maintained its fierce independence and never lost its unique traditional identity. Sardinian history is one of centuries of isolation, preserving ancient local traditions with little outside interference. Religious festivals, earthy cuisine, music inspired by the sounds of nature, and deep-rooted language are the pride of its residents and inspire admiration from its visitors. Along with its pristine beaches, untamed nature and pre-historic sites, Sardinia is truly a unique and unforgettable place to visit.
