Green Train
THE 'TRENINO VERDE'>FROM NULVI TO PALAU
 


>THE  NULVI - PALAU  LINE
Other means of communication raze nature to the ground, while this railway harmonically adapts to it.  "There's not even an embankment," wrote Elio Vittorini. "When you meet an obstacle, you turn, as no one bothered to dig a tunnel." The line crosses Gallura and stops at the station in Arzachena, the most important town on the Costa Smeralda, and ends at Palau, facing la Maddalena.

>ALONG  THE  WAY

  • Carucana Petrified Forest: located in the village of Martis on the bottom of an ancient lake, it is what remains of a Miocene forest.
  • Dolmen: the village of Luras boasts the largest number of these prehistoric monuments.
  • Perfugas: an archeological and paleobotanical museum in the centre of the village houses a sacred well, and numerous archeological sites dating from various periods (Paleolithic to Roman) are found in the surrounding area.
