The ethnographic Museum in Aggius (514 m above the sea level, about 60 km from Porto Cervo), a very important place which stores the preciousness of the Sardinian culture. The exposition includes a variety of items: ancient typical costumes and jewels, musical instruments, tools for colouring the wool, for working wood and granite, for wine and bread production. A professional guide will answer to all of your questions and will satisfy your curiosity about our island. After visiting the museum, we will be able to choose or combine a cooking class, where we will learn how to prepare fresh pasta or a typical Sardinian bread and an artisan textile laboratory, to learn how to weave and colour the fabrics, which are normally used to create the typical Sardinian costumes.

Museum visit duration: about 30 minutes.

After the activity, possibility of lunch in an ancient farmhouse on the hills near Aggius: typical "zuppa gallurese", roasted suckling pig and "seada" as dessert will be served in a cozy atmosphere.

The Surrau winery dominates over 40 hectars of farmlands mostly cultivated with vineyards spreading out in a sunny valley caressed by the northwest wind coming from the coast. The project was born through the harmonious blending of buildings and nature. Glass walls both exalt the landscape when looking out and illustrate the winemaking activities when looking in. Spaces are laid out in a sequence of work rooms, tasting rooms and showrooms in an attempt to optimize processing spaces and expose modern methods for vinification and wine preservation. The wines produced are destined for the global market and are embassadors of the hard lands of Gallura. We wil visit the cellar, the winery and then we will taste some wine accompanied by typical Sardinian products: Carasau bread, olives, cold cuts and cheese.

Cellar visit duration: about 30 minutes

Arzachena offers to its visitors many archaeological remains and monuments of great value:

Nuraghe Albucciu - This irregular shaped Nuraghe dates back to 1600 a.C. and belongs to the so-called “Corridor" group (or “Protonuraghi" group): it has a half-rectangular ground plan and its walls are made up by granite dry stones, except a part which is substituted by a large granite rock.  On top of the surface, there are eight brackets that support the wooden balustrade. The only entrance to the Nuraghe is located on the east side and introduces to a trapezoidal corridor. On the right side there is a cell linked to the northern part of the Nuraghe by a narrow passageway.
In front of the entrance, on the west side, there are wooden stairs that lead to the fortress where the towers used to be. Around the complex there are the ruins of the ancient round huts which were part of the Nuragic village.

Malchittu Temple Nuragic - it is an ancient megaron-style temple located near Arzachena (North Sardinia) dating back to Nuragic Bronze Age (1600 - 1300 B.C.). It is built like a small medieval chappel about 14 meters long and 6 meters wide. The interior is divided into two parts: an entrance irregularly quadrangular and a larger rectangular room with rounded corners in wich we can see a small altar and remains of benches around the walls. Inside the temple is also an oak, whose roots have wrapped up the boulders that have become part of the tree.

Giants tomb Li Longhi - The tombs of the giants’ is an enormous Sardinian gallery grave. Built during the bronze age by the Nuraghic civilization, it shows the true strength of the Sardinian people during the megalithic period. Popular folklore holds that these tombs were the burial site for giants that once dominated the mountainous lands in western Sardinia. The average Sardinian is small in stature, thus leading archaeologists to believe that these tombs were instead used as a site for massive and multiple burials.

Giants grave of Coddu Vecchiu – it is one of the best preserved in this region, located on a slope in a hilly area. It was built in two stages: during the Middle Bronze Age (c.1600-1400 BC) the exedra was added to a pre-existing megalithic tomb dating from the Early Bronze Age (c.1800-1600 BC), transforming the structure into a giants’ tomb. The tomb consists of a main semicircular front (exedra) and a burial chamber.

La Prisgiona - the Nuraghe “La Prisgiona” currently looks like a pile of rubble and only a few elements can be noticed that confirm the supposed grandeur of the building. The Nuraghe La Prisgiona is located on the top of a granitic hill that dominates other nuraghi below and from which the view extends as far as the hills of the Pedres Castle. It was built using large blocks of granite roughly squared and small stones for the filling. It has never been excavated. It can be contextualized in the period between the Bronze Age and
