This small centre of the Meilogu area at the foot of Mount Pelao, is surrounded by evocative and unspoilt landscapes, abounding with streams, fruit trees and flowers. The panorama around the village is simply enchanting: on one side, the Pelao plateau, the wooded area of Littu, the olive groves of Su Monte and the poplars of Pojos. on the other the oaks of Sa Silva and the valley of Pumàri and Badde. The inhabited centre is crossed by two little streams, "su riu de mesu idda" and "su riu de 'inza ena". the latter is crossed by a bridge built in around the fifties. Despite the fact that over the last decades, urbanisation has brought the citizens to build in the outlying areas, the historic centre still has a number of characteristic corners and sights. The oldest and most traditional houses have characteristic architraves, decorated with arches whose style clearly denotes the influence of the Aragonese and Spanish cultures. There are numerous remains of ancient monuments in the area, which confirm the presence of man since the Pre-Nuraghic period.
The historic centre is characterised by the presence of three interesting churches of indisputable architectural importance. The parish Church of San Martino in Gothic style, dates back to the beginning of the XVII century and is composed of a central nave and a series of side chapels. Inside, an old statue of Maria is particularly noticeable. it has recently been restored and is now housed in the chapel dedicated to the Assumption. The Church of San Leonardo is more elegant and refined, a noteworthy example of late Gothic architecture. It has a cuspicated facade with a double-lancet bell gable and a buttressed apse. inside, the original Gothic cross-vaulted ceilings have survived over the right-hand side aisle and the presbytery. The fine capitals of the pillars in the apse are also well-preserved. The church, as documented by a number of nineteenth century scholars, was once the site of a cemetery. Finally, the Church of Santa Croce must be mentioned. It has recently been restored but tends to be used more for exhibitions or other cultural events rather, than for religious functions. The area surrounding the village offers traces of a number of monuments which demonstrate the presence of man in both the Pre-Nuraghic and Nuraghic eras. in the "S'Ena de Cannuia" area, bordering on Thiesi and Ittiri, we find a number of 'domus de janas'(chamber tombs) which are interesting both for their graffiti and the ochre decorations found on their inside. Nearby, the remains of several Nuraghi have been brought to light. among these the San Teodoro Nuraghe is distinctive, near which, numerous findings have confirmed the fact that the area was inhabited during the Roman and medieval periods.
