Ogliastra offers an infinite variety of underwater scenarios spread along its 1,800 km of coasts: ancient wrecks, downed aircraft and archaeological remains blend in with the natural environment creating many splendid possibilities for scuba divers and underwater photographers.
The morphology of the coasts varies, from sandy depths to rocks, inlets and bays, natural home to many types of fish. The currents favour the transparency of the water, creating a range of colours running from bright turquoise to deep blue, making this underwater paradise one of a kind.
To enjoy these wonders, you can practice snorkelling along the coast or use the services of one of the many scuba diving centres providing equipment and expert guides. To protect its precious coastal environment, Sardinia has a number of protected marine areas and national nature parks.
The entire area has signs of the past, traces belonging to the most remote times. However, it is the most recent history that has had a significant, instrumental effect on the town, already perceptible at the end of the nineteenth-century. The Salesiani's role in culture, with the opening of schools and high grammar schools, had a positive social impact, thus making the town an important aggregation centre for surrounding towns.
We suggest visiting the Salesiani's College, the attached church of St. John Bosco, the library and the archives building. It has been the bishop's see since 1927. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene who is honoured with big celebrations the last Sunday of July.
The other important festivities are for Don Bosco (first Sunday in June) and for the Saints Cosima and Damian (Sept. 27th), celebrated in the homonymous small, rural church.
Lanusei a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea. Surrounded by a forest of oaks, it also enjoys a privileged central position and can make its own resources and those of neighbouring villages readily available to tourists.
