On the east coast of Sardinia at the mouth of the Flumendosa river lies the traditional Sardinian village of Muravera. Countless megalithic monuments such as the aligned stones at Piscina Rei, the sacred well Funtana Coberta and the series of menhirs in the highland cork forest of Pranu Mutteddu bear testimony to the long history of this region. The landscapes here along the tributaries of the Sarrabus are extremely beautiful. Muravera is set in a landscape of hills and is bordered by large lagoons where pink flamingos and many other species of bird can often be seen. Citrus groves in the distance emanate a fresh scent that mingles with the salty aroma of the sea.
