Sites you’ll visit

  • Cheese Making
  • Supramonte
  • Cheese making is the process of transforming milk into cheese. It involves curdling the milk to create solids (curds), draining the liquid (whey), and often maturing the curds under specific conditions. This process can vary widely to produce different types of cheeses across cultures worldwide.
  • Supramonte is a rugged and pristine mountain range located in the eastern part of Sardinia, Italy. Known for its dramatic landscapes, deep gorges, dense forests, and impressive cliffs, it offers a haven for hikers, climbers, and nature enthusiasts. The area is also rich in wildlife and has numerous caves, including the famous Grotta di Ispinigoli and the Gola di Gorropu, one of Europe's deepest canyons. Supramonte's untouched nature and traditional shepherd paths make it a unique place for exploring Sardinia's wild beauty.
