An alpine landscape with wild peaks, deep gorges and sloping walls. Monte Linas is made up of granite rocks dating back 300 million years and is one of the most ancient landmasses to have emerged in Europe. It is located on the eastern border of the Iglesiente area, downstream of the Cixerri river, and it borders with the mountains of Arcuentu, to the north, and Marganai, to the south, to which it is connected by the Oridda plateau. It occupies nearly one thousand square kilometres in the territories of nine municipalities in the Medio Campidano area.
