DOMUSNÒVAS AREA


The most developed climbing area in the whole of Sardinia is in the mountains and cliffs to the north west of DomusnÚvas and Iglesias which are situated in the south western corner of the Island. This is a big area with some impressive peaks, spectacular valleys and delightful little villages; what you would expect from a great tourist location however the legacy here is one of industrial mining communities and there is little evidence of the natural beauty being exploited as a tourist destination. Iglesias and DomusnÚvas are real local towns with a local feel; pleasant to walk around but a bit frustrating if you are hungry and in search of a pizza or a place to sleep. The benefit of this is that the area is very quiet and peaceful with few other climbers and hardly any traffic on the roads.
