Seulo

You are here

Seulo is a small town belonging to the Province of Cagliari. This town lies in the subregion Barbagia of Seulo, which constitute the southern part of the main region Barbagia. This partition traces out the historical subdivision of the “curatorias”, ancient administrative areas of the Giudicati era of Sardinia, from about 900 until 1410.

This part of the territory is separated from the uplands of Sarcidano by a valley, where the river Flumendosa flows, passing through the town for 25 kilometres. Along its course the river forms many small lakes and waterfalls, such as Piscina Sa Stiddiosa and Piscina ‘e Licona.

The town lies at 800 metres above sea level, on the mountainside Perdedu (1.334 m), one of the highest peaks of Sardinia, which belongs to the Massif Gennergentu. 

Being in one of the most inaccessible and uneven territory of Sardinia, the natural and archaeological heritage of Seulo has maintained its features over the centuries. 

The territory is further characterized by calcareous upholds, where it’s possible to find several caves, such as Domus ‘e Janas, located in the Forest of Addolì, and the waterfall Su Stampu ‘e su Turrunu, a natural monument noted for its uniqueness and natural splendour.

The Nuraghe of Paùli near to the up-built area towers above the landscape and represents the most important account of Neolithic settlements in this part of the island.

What to see: 

Seulo boasts the first eco-musesum of Sardinia. It was founded in 2004 and it represents an agreement between the population and the natural richness of the town. The main elements of the eco-museum are the natural monument “Su Stampu ‘e su Turrunu” and the agropastoral traditions of the Barbagia of Seulo.

The territory can be visited by walking or by horse riding. Here it’s possible to see the imposing hundred-year-old holm oak, one of the most ancient patriarch of this species, existing in Sardinia.

Last but not least, visitors of Seulo will have the opportunity to taste a very fine local wine.
