The top of the mountain is a hotchpotch of communication dishes and masts. Not a nice location but the view should be perfect,. When we were there it was hazy so we could hardly see the Mediterranean sea. The trip up goes via a winding but good road and is already an experience. It is however better to park the car at the Valliciola parking lot and then take a walk up to the top. That rally let you admire the views, the nature and the tranquillity of the area. Though it can be tough on some rocky parts, the trip is really worth it and rewarding. There is no possibility to buy refreshments on the way up (the cafe at the parking lot was closed when we were there on a Monday during summer), so you are on your own.

We drove up the mountain with our small rental car. Road is winding and very nice to drive if you like that. Visited the old Nato base just before the top, is rather fascinating and completely falling apart. Then we parked the car and the chapel and walked on of the routes up the mountain, we loved the views over Northern Sardinia and could see a glimpse of Corsica, probably even a better view in more clear weather.

There is a winding road off the main road between Tempio and Oschiri which goes to the top of Monte Limbara. It is possible to drive right to the top at 1359 metres high. It is so peaceful at the summit and the views on a clear day are magnificent. Down from the summit is a small church and a shrine overlooking Tempio and also a picnic area.

Monte Limbara is a rocky granite massif, its highest peak is Punta Sa Berritta, 1362 m above sea level. After some restoration work Pines and giant Red Wood Sequoias were planted among the Cork Oaks, Strawberry trees (corbezzoli – a local fruit), Blackberry bushes. Previously a NATO US Air Force Communications Relay Station and Carabinieri barracks were located on the top of the massif. Today it is used as a telecommunications centre for the Italian Air Force and a heliport for the Servizio Antincendi (firefighting services). It is also the location for all the major TV relay stations of West Sardinia. It is definitely worth the drive up there, for the fit and energetic it would be a great walk, and once up there the views are fantastic. Organised trekking can be arranged if this is your thing and they say eagles, falcons and partridges with other wildlife can sometimes be seen. There are streams waterfalls, small lakes and natural caves to be found on the mountain. The Valliciola plateau is area for picnicking and there is also a hotel there. At an altitude of 1,050 meters there is a little church called La Madonna della neve (the Madonna of the Snow). Li Conchi is an area of eroded rocks hat provided a natural hiding place for the old Nuragic tribes and more recently for shepherds. In the winter time it can get as much as two feet of snow up there. Having researched all this information before we went, unfortunately we did not have enough time to do and see all these wonderful things, so do make sure, if this article is of interest, that you make time to spend in this place.
