On its peak, which is over 800 metres high, stands a bronze statue of Christ, a work of art created by an artist from Madrid, Pedro Angel Terron Manrique. The sculpture is twelve metres high and it is a reproduction of the wooden statue of the holy Crucifix located inside the church of the same name in Galtellì. Thanks to the symbolic presence, Mount Tuttavista, it is a destination for pilgrimages for those who wish to meditate in a secluded place in contact with nature, along a captivating trail that climbs its slopes.
The mountain is located in Baronìa, in the territories of Galtellì, Onifai and Orosei. Its sides are delimited by the alluvial valley of the Cedrino river. From the peak, you can see a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding territory: to the south, there is Dorgali with mount Irveri, to the west the Cedrino river, Galtellì, Loculi and Irgoli, to the northwest the long Monte Albo mountain range and to the east the Gulf of Orosei. Travelling along the scenic road, up the slopes and along the hairpin bends, you will stop numerous times to observe breathtaking landscapes: the name of the mountain, Tuttavista (meaning 'all view'), is a guarantee. Stopping at 635 metres of altitude is a must: here, you will find a natural monument, Sa Preda Istampada (the pierced stone), a rock face in which there is a hole of 40 metres in diameter created by the wind and rain, practically a window onto the valley below and Supramonte. You can also try your hand at trekking trails, like the one that climbs the mountain from the area of Taraculi.
The limestone rock of the Tuttavista has a rugged morphology, with grottoes and Karst caves where fossils of wildlife and endemic species that lived between ten thousand and two million years ago have been found. Holm oak forests, junipers, mastics, spurge and 32 types of wild orchid - rare endemic species that you can photograph along the trails - bring colour to the mountain. The vegetation is populated by wild boars, weasels, martens, foxes and various bird species: common ravens, kestrels, partridges and buzzards. This natural oasis is also ideal for free climbing enthusiasts: there are various rock faces equipped for climbing, with medium and high difficulty paths.
