Parco Di Monte Arci

By admin | May 25, 2017 | Posted in: Uncategorised

Italy presents an exquisite location for a seaside vacation. Most of the time, summer is spent basking under the beautiful sunny weather. It is no surprise how many people love to take their families there for an unforgettable summer holiday.

One of the interesting sites for tourist attraction is the Parco di Monte Arci. This lovely national park has poetically been described as the “mountain of stone, green and water-borne from years of fire.” It is located on the north edge, along the east-side of the Rift Valley of Campidano in Sardinia.

The park extends towards the towns of Villaurbana north, east Ales, between Marrubiu south and State Road 131 west. It is a major point of interest, especially for guests at the Forte Village which is a sprawling expanse of luxury hotels and villas along Southern Sardinia.

If you are residing at any of the hotels in the village, it is interesting to note that the Monte Arci is only about 120 km away. A little over an hour and half drive via the E25 or SS 195 Sulcitana roads.

About The Parco di Monte Arci

The Park has plenty of influence in Italy’s natural and archeologic history including cultural traditions of the area itself. The Monte Arci is significant to the history of Sardinia, particularly for its mining history of obsidian, which is abundant along the slopes.

Obsidian was a more suitable material (than flint) for weapons and tools making. This volcanic glass led to the formation and growth of the first trade between Sardinia and countries overseas.

Being famous for its rich flora and fauna, the Parco di Monte Arci draws several visitors to its cherished verdant forests. It presents a chance to observe a vibrant coloration of plant and animal species co-existing in their natural habitat. Some of the plant species include wild legumes, Caprifoliaceae and Ericeae species, while the most common animal species are the wild hog and colourful bird of prey.
