Territory in Sardinia and Montresta

Montresta is a small village of just above 400 inhabitants in Planargia, bordering Logudoro Turritano. Its town, near Bosa, is 40 km from Alghero, 80 from the capital of Oristano and less than half an hour drive from the beaches of Bosa Marina . The territory of Montresta stretches from the Navrino mountain in a spectacular landscape characterized by trachitic peaks and covered by Mediterranean scrub and woods of cork trees, including the Silva Manna.

What to see in Montresta

The territory has been populated since prehistoric times, as evidenced by the many prenuragic sites (domus de Janas) and nuraghi as the Badu de sa wrinkles. Of historical times it is the most important archaeological monument, the tower called Sa Turre or nuraghe Turre, the only Punic settlement of Planargia. It is the rest of a square Carthaginian fortress, at the base of which are visible traces the masonry that completed the defensive structure. Another church to visit is the Sacred Heart,built in the 1960s on the ruins of a medieval building. The celebration of the Sacred Heart is in mid-August in the locality on Casteddu, onthe edge of the forest of s’Aspru.

To taste in Montresta

Among the typical dishes of the kitchen of Montresta we mention sos Pipiriolos, a pasta typical of Montresta, drawn in bronze with a rudimentary machine that produces four Pipiriolos at a time. It is the pasta of the feasts, of the important occasions. Very porous, it absorbs the lamb or wild boar sauce and is sprinkled with pecorino or goat cheese. The typical bread, su bistoccu. The notorious toasted bread. The Bistoccu of Montresta is a toasted bread that goes well with all kinds of food, excellent during the summer, it’s a bread that stays fresh for a very long time without the need for preservatives. Papassini, amaretti, giolminos, petitfour, fritters… A feast of almond sweets, flours, sugar, sultanas grapes, naturale flavours which are the sweet soul of this town full of candor and deliciousness.
