Touristic itineraries of the area are additional options to the wine experience tours
Trexenta’s gently undulating landscape offers many attractions of historical and cultural interest.
Senorbì is the most important center of Trexenta, an area so historically rich that the Romans called it the “the granary of Rome” for its major wheat production.
The ancient history of the territory, the peoples and civilizations that have inhabited this area are enclosed within the important archaeological museum Sa Domu Nosta, converted from an old manor house. The “little church” of Santa Mariedda can be admired in the surrounding countryside, a chiesetta built in Romanesque style during the XII century among the remains of the Punic Necropolis Monteluna.
Near Pimentel, a small medieval farming town, are two important prehistoric necropolis: the Necropolis of Corongiu, a complex consisting of several Domus de Janas carved into the limestone, and the Necropolis of Sant’Acqua Salida.
The Nuraghe Piscu in Suelli, constructed on a hilltop in a position of domination, is perhaps the most representative monument of Trexenta’s Nuragic Civilization.
Mandas was an important railway station in the past. Today, it is the end of the train line and the station where the “Trenino Verde” (the little Green Train) departs, running along the touristic route of Mandas-Arbatax.
