Sinnai, Sardegna, Italy

The territory. The Forest of the Sette Fratelli

We are located within the Sette Fratelli Regional Park, a fascinating oasis in the south east of Sardinia. With about 60 thousand hectares of land, of which almost ten thousand covered with forests, the park is one of the largest in all of Italy. It is divided into various bodies of which the main one is called "Campu Omu". The forest, one of the best preserved in Sardinia, is one of the most interesting areas of the island from a landscape, wildlife and naturalistic point of view.

Its surface includes the mountainous peaks and the homonymous state forest, the forests of Castiadas and that of Monte Genis.

Its peaks reach about a thousand meters and can be reached via various marked trails that can be traveled both on foot and by mountain bike. The highest are Monte Aguzzo and Punta Ceraxa.

The protagonists of the park are the forest, waterfalls, natural pools, granite rocks, gorges and overhanging paresti, a true force of nature that make the landscape fascinating but made up of a complex ecosystem.


To be seen

The forest is a popular half for lovers of nature, trekking, mountain biking and climbing; for visitors there are numerous hiking trails, which allow you to reach the most valuable sites of the forest. At the disposal of visitors there is a visitor center, where it is possible to receive some information for a correct and safe use of the area, and to visit a museum dedicated to the Sardinian deer. The museum offers a broad reading of the suggestive world that surrounds the Sardinian deer, through naturalistic preparations, artistic canvases, dioramas, educational spaces and materials of high scientific interest. In the locality of Maidopis a botanical garden has been created which is also accessible to the blind; the path is in fact equipped with a rope handrail that accompanies the visitor to the rest stations, and leads to cross the Maidopis stream through a bridge accessible to all visitors where the visitor can stop in the shade of the holm oaks. The garden is equipped with an educational room, some areas equipped for picnics and a guardian point. It can be reached by car along the approximately 3 km of dirt road from Campu Omu to Maidopis.

Furthermore, at the mountain campsite in Bau Arrexini, there are areas equipped for barbecue.

Among the sites of archaeological interest, we will mention the nuraghe Sa Fraigada, a nuraghe of an essential planimetric type, which cleverly exploits and incorporates in its structure the rocky walls of the relief in which it is located and the Tomb of the giants Is Concias.


Hiking network of the Sette Fratelli

In 2017, interventions were carried out to re-arrange the Sette Fratelli Hiking Network. The paths of the paths historically known with the name of:
• Sentiero Italia
• Red path, yellow path, white path, green path, orange path, blue path.

These paths, in collaboration with the Cagliari section of the CAI SARDEGNA, during 2019 and 2020 were re-arranged (new horizontal signs and new arrows already put in place) according to the national and regional standard (RES) and re-named with numbers from the regional cadastre of trails:
• Sentiero Italia inside Sette Fratelli -> Path n. 800
• Path n.1 "red" -> Path number 811 and 811A (deer enclosure aka "nature path")
• Path n.2 "yellow" (from Maidopis to Perda sub'e Pari + "white" path) -> Path 812 (from Perda sub'e Pari to the forest track becomes 812A)
• Path n.4 “orange” -> Path 814
• Route 5 "green" -> Trail 815
In addition, the stages of the Sentiero Italia from Castiadas to Sette Fratelli (stage 28), and from Sette Fratelli to Punta Serpeddì (stage 26) passing through the (stage 27) have been completed. The recovery of the Italy path then continues north, to reach Monte Genis, Villasalto, Perdasdefogu, Ierzu ... and up to S. Teresa Gallura.

Climatic aspects. The climate is typically Mediterranean, characteristic of the southern Sardinian areas, with hot, long and dry summers that last for about four months, while the winter is mild and moderately rainy. During the winter, however, it is not uncommon to see the peaks of the Sette Fratelli whitened by heavy snow.

Geopedological aspects. From a geological point of view, the F. D. Sette Fratelli is characterized by extensive granite outcrops modeled by water erosion and wind. The waterways are mainly seasonal, while the altitude of the forest varies, reaching its highest point with the top of Punta Ceraxa and its 1016 meters.

Vegetational aspects. This sometimes impervious area has retained many strips of the typical vegetation cover of the island. The most widespread forest formation is the holm oak associated, depending on the situation, with the strawberry tree, broadleaf phillyrea, heather and viburnum. At medium-low altitudes there is also the cork oak. On the highest ridges, towards the peaks of the Sette Fratelli, there is pulvinus vegetation with Corsican broom, thyme, lavender, while along the riverbeds the riparian vegetation of oleander, willow and alder. The area is also rich in biodiversity and endemics.

Faunal aspects. The F. D. Sette Fratelli is certainly one of the areas of excellence for the Sardinian deer that has found refuge here and is now present in large numbers, thanks to the targeted actions for its protection and conservation carried out by the Sardinia Forestry Authority. The state-owned forest of Sette Fratelli is not only home to the Sardinian deer, but is a natural environment where you can meet, among others, the eagle, the marten, the fox and the Sardinian hare, as well as the very frequent wild boar.

How to reach it. Coming from the south (Cagliari) or from the opposite side (Muravera) of the state road n.125 (Orientale sarda) follow it up to the junction for Burcei. Here, in Valico Arcu 'e Tidu, at Km. 30.100, turn right (for those arriving from Cagliari) and after traveling for about 250 meters you will reach the former U. Noci barracks service center. Forest entrance GPS coordinates: N 39 ° 18 '19.4' 'E 9 ° 23' 38 '' (geographical coordinates DMS, reference system WGS84).
