The Area

A place waiting to be discovered

Luogosanto is in the very centre of Gallura, right at the foot of the Monti Juanni mountains, surrounded by rich, unspoilt vegetation. Granite, moulded into surreal forms by the wind, frames the landscape.

The beautiful and well-maintained historic centre is pleasant to walk through. A Basilica dedicated to Our Lady of Luogosanto has been kept in perfect condition since it was built in 1200. You can visit numerous archaeological sites that are only a few kilometres away. Historical remains stretch from the pre-nuragic and nuragic period, with Dolmen and Domus de Janas, to the feudal age, with the remains of two Giudicale castles, most notably the Palazzo Baldu.

The Castles

Palazzo Baldu is evidence of the medieval life of the Giudicato of Gallura. It was in fact composed of a quadrangular tower, surrounded by about twenty other buildings and had a living and representation purpose.

Balaiana castle , on the other hand, is on Mount Leonardo and can be reached by foot via a staircase among the granite rocks. Only the ruins of this 12th century castle remain, but it is still worth a walk.
