It sits at the north-western edge of the Bitti plateau, a short distance from the river Tirso, in an area where ancient trails through woods of cork oaks lead to breath-taking views and sites of great archaeological importance. With about 250 inhabitants, Osidda is the smallest municipality in the Province of Nuoro, wedged between two territories, Buddusò and Nule, and surrounded by vast green expanses that invite long walks. In the Medieval period, it was part of the curatorial of Monte Acuta in the Giudicato of Gallura. Today it is a agro-pastoral town with close ties to its unique traditions.
