Barbagia is the heart of Sardinia.
A whole day dedicated to the heritage and culinary & wine traditions of two among the most popular towns in Sardinia: Orgosolo and Mamoiada in Barbagia. The EU excellence Mediterranean Masks Museum, as well as the many family-owned Cannonau wineries in Mamoiada will definitely be part of our tour. Then, let us feast our eyes on Orgosolo and its murals, an icon of contemporary Sardinia.
The Barbagia Experience tour depart from Cagliari or other destination requested and include the visit at the museum masks, the visit at the wine cellar with the food&wine experience, the walking tour in the village of Orgosolo beetween the murals and the old historic center.

One of the best museum networks that will give you a deeper insight into Sardinia’s rural life, from trades to traditions, is the MaMu – Mamoiada Museums network, which includes three museums: the Museum of the Mediterranean Masks, the Museum of Local Culture and Trades and the MATer – Museum of Archaeology and of the surrounding Territory.

Mamoiada is a small town in an area called Barbagia, at the heart of Sardinia, with a population of less than 3000 inhabitants and is particularly renowned for its specific local masks, Mamuthones and Issohadores, and its wine, named after the grape variety called Cannonau.

Is there a connection between masks and wine? To what extent are the local trades related to the local popular traditions? Which kind of relationship is there between these museums and the local community?

Visiting the MaMu network will help you answer these questions.

An absolutely lovely day visiting this region with Francesco. The mask museum is interesting, the lunch stop is fantastic. A local winery just outside of the first village with amazing countryside views and delicious home made food and of course the red wine. After lunch the murals in Orgosolo are interesting and a sight to be seen, the town is nestled in between the mountains which provides fantastic views. All in all a wonderful, relaxed day to see this part of the island. Thank you.
