Brief description

Via the ancient miners’ trail you descend from the metal bearing hills of the Guspinese-Arburese territory to the Campidano plains where we encounter the basaltic flows of tertiary volcanism with the spectacular columnar basalt geosite and then an uphill walk on granite rocks towards the town center of Arbus
