Oristano e' uno dei capoluoghi di provincia della regione Sardegna: si trova nel golfo omonimo a nord della pianura del Campidano e sulla sua sinistra e' percorsa dal fiume Tirsi. E'' uno dei centri economici principali della Sardegna grazie alle sue industrie ed alla attivita agricola. Le origini di Aristanis non sono documentabili quindi si attribuisce attendibilita storica ad un documento del XVI come prima segnalazione di insediamento stabile: uno storico sardo scrive che nel 1070 e' avvenuto un esodo della popolazione della citta Tharros a causa del dominio saraceno. Nel XII secolo divenne capitale di Arborea (zona antica della Sardegna) e conobbe un notevole sviluppo economico. In seguito venne dominata dagli Aragonesi e dagli Spagnoli. Nel 1720 venne annessa al Piemonte insieme all''intera isola nel Regno di Sardegna. Da vedere: Torre di San Cristoforo: questa possente torre viene chiamata anche Torre di Mariano II dal nome del giudice d''Arborea che la fece costruire nel 1291. Questa torre e' tutto quello che rimane di un''antica cinta muraria medievale distrutta nel XIX secolo. E'' strutturata su pianta quadrilatera su tre piani ed ha il lato verso la citta aperto; in cima al baluardo e' presente una piccola torre campanaria merlata del XV secolo. Casa di Eleonora d''Arborea: questa casa e' situata in via Parpaglia ed e' un interessante esempio di architettura del XVI secolo. Presenta caratteristiche rinascimentali e nella facciata presenta l''emblema del Casato d''Arborea (un albero sradicato). Eleonora d''Arborea rivesti un''importante carica amministrativa ma e' molto ricordata come eroina locale per la sua difesa dell''impedenza della provincia ocntro gli Aragonesi. Ad Oristano in suo onore c''e' anche una piazza ed un monumento. Cattedrale di Oristano: la cattedrale della Beata Vergine Assunta si trova in piazza del Duomo ed e' affiancata da un bel campanile a pianta ottagonale e cupola a cipolla. E'' stata costruita nel XIII secolo e conserva ancora caratteristiche della sua struttura originaria, tra cui la Cappella del Rimadio, la base del Campanile e parte dell''abside. Nel corso dei secoli questo edificio e' stato rimaneggiato: alcune caratteristiche barocche furono aggiunte nel XVIII secolo. L''interno del Duomo e' strutturato su pianta a croce latina , possiede tre cupole di cui la prima a destra custodisce una statua in legno dell''Annunziata (opera di Nino Pisano).

SARDEGNA


A journey sailing on an emerald sea among small and big coves with snow-white sand and this is Sardinia, an Island that strikes its visitors with natural contrasts, the lights and colours of a region that guards old traditions, amid wilderness and pure nature. Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia is a mainly mountainous region, without high peaks, with a vast and charming, yet bittersweet, natural environment. In fact, the presence of man does not seem to affect this territory; great surfaces still preserve their natural composition, luxuriant woods with even millenary trees, small desert areas and marshes inhabited by deer, wild horses and rapacious birds. The sea reigns over this region with its colours and it creeps into the coves, along the coasts, the beaches and the most popular resorts. An example is the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) with its pearl, Porto Cervo, that combines the history and culture of a region that has old traditions with a joyful and colourful nightlife. Porto Cervo was named after its enchanting cove, which looks like the antlers of a deer; the Old Port is considered the best-equipped tourist port in the Mediterranean Sea. Porto Rotondo is also a famous location; it overlooks the wide Gulf of Cugnana and is full of villas and piazzas embedded in a splendid natural environment. Those who prefer the mountain to the sea can explore the area of Gennargentu, the greatest mountain range in Sardinia, with its peculiar landscape, where Man and Nature joined one another and decided that the latter should have the priority. This region is rich in flora and fauna, with its mouflons, golden eagles, Sardinian deer and several species that are now threatened with extinction. Among its wonders, Sardinia offers the visitor the Nuragic complexes scattered all over the territory. These are unique monuments in the world that testify an ancient culture, that remains partly mysterious, and that went from the fifteenth century to the sixteenth BC. The Nuragic constructions were built using great blocks of stone and develop around a central cone-shaped tower that transmits strength and power. These are archaeological sites where it is possible to grasp the archaic charm of ancient rituals and domestic life. Of these many constructions, the complex of Barumini, in the province of Cagliari, is among the sites in the UNESCO World Heritage list. The provinces of the region are: Cagliari (regional capital), Carbonia-Iglesias, Nuoro, Olbia-Tempio, Oristano, Medio Campidano, Sassari and Ogliastra.
