Gennargentu, Sardinia

#34 of 72 in Nature in Sardinia
Gennargentu (Italian: [dʒennarˈdʒɛntu]; Sardinian: Ghennarghentu [ɡennaɾˈɡentu]) is a large massif in central-southern Sardinia, Italy, encompassing the provinces of Nuoro and Ogliastra. It includes the highest peaks on the island, such as Punta La Marmora (1,834 m or 6,017 ft), Monte Spada (1,595 m or 5,233 ft), Punta Erba Irdes (1,676 m or 5,499 ft), Bruncu Spina (1,829 m or 6,001 ft) and Punta Paulinu (1,792 m or 5,879 ft).

The range forms part of the Gennargentu National Park. Geologically, its rocks are amongst the oldest in Europe, and are therefore smooth shaped: rock types include schist, limestone and granite.

  • Gennargentu Massif. The Gennargentu mountains really give an idea of wild Sardinia. We made this excursion in 29 members of the Alpine Club, together with the guide, and it was an unforgettable trip. Punta La Marmora is the highest peak of the Gennargentu massif (1834 meters) and is reached after a climb of about 3 hours. The trail climbs quite gently, between meadows and rocks, and only the last 40 minutes are of "real" ascent. From up there, under the cross, enjoys a unique panorama. An excursion that I recommend to all mountain lovers.
