Certainly what makes Gallura recognisable to the rest of the world is the name ‘Costa Smeralda’. Over the last 60 years, it has been the main promoter of Sardinia’s image abroad, but Gallura is a more rich land. In addition to its sea and coastline, characterised by inlets, coves and small fjords, it offers a countryside with a remarkable landscape. A mountainous and hilly territory that during the winter period, the one least known to tourists, lights up with colours, with the intense green of its oak, cork and juniper woods, the yellow of the broom that populates the undergrowth and the white of the heather blossoms. This mixture activates the senses of those lucky enough to be able to admire these breathtaking landscapes. This naturally wild land has been home to the people who live here for countless centuries. From time immemorial, people have chosen to live in this part of Sardinia, perhaps because of the conformation of the land, which allows cultivation (its Vermentino wines are famous) and the rearing of livestock.
