Oristano:

Italy, Sardinia, Oristano to Capoterra

On our way out from Oristano we found this great old Roman bridge over Rio Palmas, 30 meters length and 5.9 meters wide.

We see a lot more cacti in these areas compared to earlier. In background Oristano's harbor.

The roads climbing up to the mountain summit when we passed the mountains that separate the north and south part of island. Sometimes very small roads and we also passed the small streets of some villages. Here we stayed and look over an olive grove. This road SP126 between Guspini and Iglesias are very beautiful with gourgus landscapes, best we had this day.

A stop and a view over the valley, at this road the average speed was only about 30 km/h. The road is far from as wide and straight as we see here.

After passing the summit the road climbing down. We head for the small coast village Sant Antioco.


Sant Antioco:

This is the museum at the island Sant Antioco at the edge of the village with the same name. It was closed and we just look around, after this we go back to the harbor that we just have passed.

It's very nice to see that they still have the old wooden boats.

We see that some of the boats have fish nets so it's not only for the tourists they are here.
