Its extension, of over 35 thousand hectares, gradually becomes invisible to the naked eye and is large enough to contain the territories of five villages, Baunei, Dorgali, Oliena, Orgosolo and Urzulei, and part of the Gulf of Orosei. Supramonte is a mountain range featuring plateaus and sinkholes. The landscape has distinctive features identical to each other: huge bastions, deep canyons and rocky peaks towering up towards the sky. However, each municipality has its ‘own’ Supramonte, with original and unique natural monuments.
The Nuragic village of Tiscali enriches the territory of Dorgali and Oliena. The Grotta del Bue Marino is the undisputed symbol of Dorgali; the gorge of Su Gorroppu identifies Baunei and also Dorgali. In the Supramonte di Oliena area, above the valley of Lanaittu, the cave of Corbeddu is well worth a visit. Its name comes from the bandit who took shelter here in the 20th century and it is well-known for being the place in which the remains of a deer, already extinct in the Sardinian Pleistocene era, was discovered, from which the humans are presumed to have been present on the massif 18,500 years ago.
