Guspini - turismo e dintorni

Located in a valley at the foot of Mount Santa Margherita and of Montixeddu, Guspini, shows a vast territory, from the borders of Oristano up to the metal deposits of Iglesiente.
The rich natural and almost virgin area, offers visitors unforgettable scenery and emotions.In the woods of Holm oaks and cork trees, which go from the edge of town and the mining sites, it is not difficult to see the Sardinian deer.
In town you can find a small volcanic cone with the characteristic "organ pipe" shape, these sections of prismatic basalt columns, were used in ancient times as building material along with granite and the traditional clay bricks.
Walking through the streets there are views worthy of note: clay houses alternate with Liberty Style Constructions, Roman fountains, and churches with igneous features.
Some typical houses, adapted as museums, tell through its different objects and architecture, the life of the past.
The quaint mining town of Montevecchio immerses you in the mine world, which have greatly influenced Guspini’s society for the past centuries.
The disused industrial heritage, now partly recovered, allows you to relive the hardships of the miners, the evolution of the architecture and the technological innovation.
The pageantry that characterized the late nineteenth century bourgeoisie is seen, especially in the Mining office building, where its pride and joy is the Blue Room. Its distinctive designs are still showing in all their beauty, creating a sharp contrast with the sobriety of the poor.
The structures of the extraction sites are worth a closer look.
The tradition of Guspini mining does not stop in the nineteenth century, its traces are found everywhere in the vast archaeological heritage, from Nuraghi scattered throughout the territory, coming up with the great spas of Neapolis.
Between visits to the museum and hiking clubs they offer original and refreshing products: bread, cheese, sweets and the award-winning local honey.
Do not forget, before you leave, to take a look at the crafts to remind you of Guspini and Montevecchio as a mine of emotions.
