We explore the pristine volcanic plateau of the Giara to meet the reknowned wild horses. We also discover Su nuraxi, the important prehistoric monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Giara is a vast uncontaminated basalt plateau where thousands of wild horses have lived for thousands of years, though it remains a mystery how they came to inhabit this natural landscape of outstanding beauty. We approach them through the cork oak trees and the myrtle-scented shrubs, to see them while they drink calmly in the small ponds. Below them, on the plain, we spot in the distance the monumental nuraghe of Barumini. This typical Sardinian prehistoric structure was built with stones carved out from the Giara itself. The nuraghe is made up of a system of towers, part of an old genial idea the memory of which has sadly been lost.Today we can witness an amazing prehistoric monument built by people who knew how to govern with balance over the external forces.

The island of Sant'Antioco is home to the ruins of the oldest urban settlement in Sardinia, the Phoenician city of Sulky. We walk in the town of Sant'Antioco itself where the ancient settlement once stood; its colourful houses line along the small port where every day the fishermen sell their catch. The looks, the smiles and every little gesture of the local people could resemble those of the Phoenicians, of a place that still hides secrets. One of them is the tradition of the byssus, the renowned golden brown marine natural filaments that are still spun and woven today to get fine embroidery. We stroll along the coast on beautiful beaches interspersed with rocky natural barriers where the waves of the turquoise sea break. And we finally reach Calasetta, a small town of white houses nestled in juniper woods and vineyards that stretch all the way to the coast in front of the Faro di Mangiabarche, a working lighthouse that still guides sailors to safety.
