Located half an hour away from Arbus in the village of Fluminimaggiore, the caves of Su Mannau are among the most ancient not only in Sardinia, but also in the world.
These amazing Sardinia caves are divided into two branches of variegated ducts and chambers that spread over 8 kms at various levels. Sparkling calcite spans over shallow ponds and streams, while stalagmites jostle with stalactites to create a memorising natural museum.
Legend has it that ancient Sardinians visited these caves to perform their rights and rituals - and remains of oil lamps have been discovered to support this.
Today you can follow in their footsteps with the aid of a professional guide.
