Location: East of Sardinia

The forest of Montes covers a surface area of 11.332 acres in the district of Orgosolo, in the Province of Nuoro. The forest is characterized by evergreen oaks woods with centuries-old high trunks. There's nothing comparable, neither for extension or characteristics, in the whole Mediterranean.
The forest of Montes extends from the high valley of Cedrino to Rio Flumineddu.
The main evergreen oaks wood of Sas Bades is already quite impressive in itself, but the nuragic village inside is proof of its extraordinary longevity. Among “Pinnetos” (shelters made by the local
shepherds with wood and branches) and an enchanting vegetation, you can see many other evidences of the past, such as the Tombs of Giants and the amazing Nuraghe Mereu, characterized by its white colour, due to the limestone used to build it.
Besides the beautiful evergreen oaks wood, the vegetation of the forest of Montes is rich in maples, yew trees, peonies, hollies, phillyreas and strawberry trees.
Where the flora is luxuriant different species of fauna can find shelter and protection. So it's not difficult seeing pine martens, wildcats, dormice, garden dormice, hares, wild rabbits, foxes and partridges. The forest also abounds in Sardinian wild boars and boasts the presence of the characteristic mouflon, a mammal which is the symbol of wildest Sardinia, that is slowly starting to repopulate the island's mountains.
As in every visit to one of Sardinia's forests, when the dense brushwood allows it, a careful observer  should turn his eyes towards the sky. The reason is easy: the chance to admire the sight of golden eagles, wood-pigeons, hooded crows, goshawks, sparrow-hawks and Sardinian common ravens, that live in the sky and fight for survival.
