Mountain and Mines
Muravera is surrounded and protected by seven green peaks you can see from the terrace of Domu Elvira: it is the chain of the Sette Fratelli, the Seven Brothers, famous for the presence of the park of the same name, with woodlands and native plants such as myrtle and arbutus where you can often catch sight of wild boar, martens, deer, hawks and golden eagles. Even in Castiadas’ forest, a few minutes away by car and just above the former penal colony, you can walk through lush vegetation, the habitat of deer and fawns.
And then come the mines, a unique feature of all Sardinia, so much so that itineraries have been laid out: the famous Via dell’Argento, the Silver Trail. One of the most interesting excursions is to Baccu Arrodas, near Muravera, in the forest of the same name, and Monte Narba, near the town of San Vito, where you can visit its ghost village.
