A first stop is the locality of Maidopis about 5 km., where in the frame of a beautiful pond, there is a restocking fence of Sardinian deer.
It is possible to walk through the path “Italy” reported in the colors white / red, to reach the locality of Baccumalu, where in the setting of a fairytale forest of oaks, is the repopulation fence of wild bighorn sheep (mufloni), this year gladdened by birth to three puppies, if you’re lucky to get an hour in which they are feeding, you can see them, usually they are very shy animals and do not approach.
