Brief description

This stage is not too long but quite demanding.

You pass through majestic holm oak woods while walking on granite, encounter several streams, and finally reach the lush gardens full of citrus and cherry trees of Villa Scema.

From the chapel of the Perd’e Pibera mine to the ancient church of Villacidro, dedicated to Santa Barbara, the cult for the patroness of the miners is very present.
