Parco dei sette Fratelli (The seven brothers park )

For the lovers of nature visiting the Southeast of Sardinia this park is a must see spot.

Along national route S.S. 125 (Orientale Sarda) that connects Cagliari with Castiadas and Muravera there is a spectacular countryside characterised by the canyon with the Cannas River that runs at the bottom of it and by a thick wood that extends to the road anticipating the natural reserve by the name of Parco dei Sette Fratelli (that in English means The Seven Brothers’ park). The original State forest centre has been preserved since 1886 and with time, the protected area has been extended. Walking through the many well posted paths you will admire holm-oaks, cork-oaks, Mediterranean vegetation, alders, oleanders and willow trees. If you are lucky you might even see a fine example of the Sardinian deer together with wild boars and moufflons. Among the birds of prey the royal eagle is the only example left on these mountains where they have a high nest-building rate; there are also 115 vertebrate species, including amphibian, reptiles, birds and mammals that find a perfect habitat here.
