  • Monastery, you can buy lot of religious stuff hand made by monks there.
  • Former cathedral between the XII and XIII centuries, built in Pisa style still "active" despite the time, since 1950 houses a community of Benedictine monks. The fa├žade is the most important architectural element along with the inner pulpit and the promenade alone is worth the walk. The monastery dominates, like a castle, the underlying village of Borutta and a series of valleys and hills that are bare but picturesque. An oasis of peace that lends itself to the Benedictine motto "Ora et Labora", an ideal destination for school trips because it is a few kilometers from the main freeway of Sardinia, the SS131, and has a large square where they can park and maneuver the Bus. The internal cloister is open to visitors and you can buy some handmade products from the monasteries such as honey and other beekeeping products, jams and small souvenirs.
