Gennargentu is a large massif in central-southern Sardinia, Italy, encompassing the provinces of Nuoro and Ogliastra. It includes the highest peaks in the island, such as Punta La Marmora (1,834 m), Monte Spada (1,595 m), Punta Erba Irdes (1,676 m), Bruncu Spina (1,829 m) and Punta Paulinu (1,792 m). The range forms part of the Gennargentu National Park. Geologically, its rocks are amongst the oldest in Europe, and have therefore a mild shape: rock types include schist, limestone and granite.
