In Sardegna tra mare e miniere
22 giorni a piedi nel più spettacolare parco geominerario d’Italia
On foot in Sardinia. 22 stages, 450 kilometres. A fascinating journey by sea and mines. Almost a month on foot, or by bicycle, in the Sulcis-Iglesiente area, to discover the first Geomining Park recognized by UNESCO. The recovered and restored mines, the archaeological sites, the many ghost villages, the historic centres, Carbonia, Iglesias, Montevecchio… Hospitality in the homes of Domus Amigas. An uninterrupted journey from the crystal clear sea to the dense woods of the interior, from the sand dunes to the Mediterranean maquis up to the salt mines. And, together, the stories and tales of miners and their families, strikes, hard work and the vicissitudes of a troubled and beautiful land. Traveling like this allows everyone to recover stories, presences, fragments of past lives and the soul of a unique territory. The series of Terre di mezzo guides on “routes” was created to raise awareness of routes rich in meaning and history and to promote “light” ways and styles of travel that are within everyone’s reach.
