The city of Oristano lies on the central western of Sardinia on the plain known as high Campidano just 4 km from the sea. Its historical centre displays the ancient mediaeval urban pattern and preserves several monuments of relevance. The area boasts some of the most dramatic and untouched scenery on the island. Natural oases, vast lagoons with flocks of pink flamingos, imposing Roman ruins such as Tharros and Fordongianus, magnificent medieval buildings and towns like Bosa, ancient Romanesque churches, awaits you in this remarkably unexplored corner of Sardinia. At the same time, you are never far from the enchanting coast, whose highlights include the spectacular cliffs of Sinis, the pristine waters of the white quartz beach of Mari Ermi, the unspoilt beach at Putzu Idu and the untouched beaches of the isle of Mal di Ventre which with the Sinis coastline forms a Marine protected zone and a divers’ paradise.
