Full description
On the Giara, there is an important variety of animal species. Forests of cork and oak alternate with Mediterranean maquis, garrigues, prairies, and ponds to make this plateau a rich fauna shelter, in which the most famous specimen is the Giara horse. These wild horses of medium height (no more than 120 centimeters at the withers) are not a native breed, but they have been on the plateau since time immemorial.

Driving about 1 hour from Cagliari in to the country side of Sardinia, you'll reach Barumini and you'll see this wonderful place that from 1997 has been enrolled in the UNESCO World Heritage Lists because of its uniqueness.

After lunch(not included), you'll drive towards Gesturi, where you can have a walk tour in the Giara Park and meet the Sardinian Wild Horses. Also in the park you can visit the older kind of Nuraghe "Proto Nuraghe". The fauna of the Giara includes some of the most common species of mammals that are normally present in the woodlands of Sardinia: wild boars, foxes, martens, wild rabbits, hares and hedgehogs. Besides these, it is worth mentioning the many species of permanent birds, such as Sardinian partridges, sparrowhawks, and peregrine falcons, and a large number of migratory birds, both terrestrial (thrushes, blackbirds, woodcocks, wood pigeons) and aquatic (herons, ducks, snipes, marsh harriers). Nesting species include hawfinches, mistle thrushes, woodlarks, shrikes, black buntings, Dartford warblers, great spotted woodpeckers, jays and bee-eaters.
