About Trinità D’Agultu
A pristine stretch of coastline characterized by rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and a sea as blue as the sky. It is the beautiful setting where Trinità d’Agultu e Vignola is situated, two towns that have merged into one over the years. The result is an idyllic village high up on a hill along the northern Sardinian coastline. The rolling hills surrounding the town makes it the paradise-like setting any traveler is looking for. Located about 200 kilometers north of Cagliari, and approximately 50 kilometres west of Olbia, Trinità d’Agultu e Vignola is well-hidden in the gentle hills and the agricultural landscape surrounding it. The place has a lot of history. You can still discover traces in the form of burial chambers, remnants of ancient Roman roads and ruins of old houses. These are the leftovers of Neolithic and Nuraghic cultures, two ancient civilizations that used to inhabit the island of Sardinia. It was these cultures that built the village around a chapel that used to serve shepherds. Even though the town has grown over the years, the rural lifestyle from the 1700s is still present. Sheep herding is an activity still practiced today by local inhabitants, and the milk and cheese produced by it have won several prizes in Europe. Another regional specialty is Zuppa Gallurese, a hearty peasant stew made with beef broth and dry bread. Given the location of Trinità d’Agultu e Vignola near the coast, seafood is an essential ingredient in the local cuisine, though the tradition of mountain cuisine isn’t too far away. The conservation of the local culture hasn’t been an easy endeavor since summer tourism has become the primary source of income in Trinità d’Agultu e Vignola. This comes as no surprise, as the jagged coastline and the wind-sculpted red rocks of Costa Paradiso make this region a paradise for sun seekers and water sports enthusiasts. Renowned beaches are just around the corner, they are widely regarded as one of the top things to do in northern Sardinia. While the sea may convince most sun-seekers to make Trinità d’Agultu e Vignola their next holiday destination, the town offers activities for outdoor enthusiasts as well. The hills are the perfect playground for biking, hiking and horse riding.
