Wood of Sos Nibberos
The protected area of Sos Nibberos covers around 7 hectares and is located within the forest of Monte Pisanu, in the territory of Bono and Bottidda, about 70 km from Sassari. The most of the area is covered by yew trees (Taxus baccata), particularly in some areas, together with hollies (Ilex aquifolium) and oaks (Quercus pubescens and Quercus ilex). Sos Nibberos was declared Natural Monument by the Sardinian Regional Government in 1994: several trees in the forest are older than 500 years.
Nuraghe of Santu Antine
It is one of the most beautiful and imposing prehistorical buildings known as ‘nuraghi’. This is a very ancient word by which the local population called the towers and castles built for the control and defence of Sardinia from about 1500 B.C. to 500 B.C. These early inhabitants of the island generated what is now called the Nuragic Civilization. The nuraghe of Santu Antine is situated about 50 km from Sassari. The nuraghe is named “Santu Antine” (that is, St. Constantine), but is better known under the popular name of “Sa Domo de su Re” (the ‘House of the King’), because of a nuragic royal palace. It is sorrounded by about ten minor nuraghi, one of the nearest and most important (and for this reason treated in a separate chapter) being the Nuraghe Oes, at about 800 metres from Santu Antine.
Basilica Santa Maria del Regno
The church, together with the annexed castle, was built in the 11th century by Giorgia, daughter of the Giudice (Judge) of Torres, the historical state which covered the northwest portion of the island. The church was built in dark basalt stone by workers from Pisa, Tuscany. The façade is divided into five sectors and has a salient-shaped façade. In the middle there is the portal, surmounted by a double mullioned window. The whole exterior of the edifice is characterized by false columns (lesenes) and Lombard bands; on the right are the remains of the square bell tower, which is missing the upper part. The interior, on a rectangular plan, has a nave and two aisles divided by columns whose capitals have flower motifs. In the semi-circular apse there is the large retablo, the largest 16th-century polyptych in Sardinia. The table portrays several prohets and saints, as well as episodes in the life of the Virgin Mary. In the middle, within a niche, is the wooden statue of Nostra Signora del Regno, a "Madonna with Child" wearing royal symbols.
Basilica di Saccargia
The Basilica della Santissima Trinità di Saccargia ("Basilica of the Holy Trinity of Saccargia") is a church located in the municipality of Codrongianos, northern Sardinia, about 20 km from Sassari . It is the most important Romanesque church in the island. The construction is entirely in local stone (black basalt and white limestone), with a typical appearance of Tuscan Romanesque style. The church was finished in 1116 over the ruins of a pre-existing monastery. Its construction was ordered by the Giudice (judge) of Torres. It was entrusted to Camaldolese monks who founded an abbey. It was later enlarged following the Pisane style, including the tall bell tower. The portico on the façade is also probably a late addition, and is attributed to workers from Lucca, Tuscany.
