At first glance, you will be struck by the fairy-tale atmosphere of the forest, equipped with a convenient picnic area. Then, going up along the path, first you’ll see a small church appear with a spectacular open-air altar next to it, then you’ll see a nuraghe, more hidden by the surrounding vegetation. All this is found inside the Monte Sant’Antonio Park, a small oasis just eight kilometres from Macomer. The origin of the elevation is volcanic and it has an altitude of about 800 metres. On its slopes, there is a green area of 277 hectares, mainly made up of downy oaks, but you will also see cork oak groves and reforestation of holm oaks and chestnut trees, where wild rabbits, Sardinian hares, foxes, wild boars and martens roam.
