Italy, Sardinia – A Climb Up Punta la Marmora Mountain

Published: 18.8.2022
Whenever we go on vacation, one of the first things we look for is the highest mountain on the island. It is already our tradition to try to look at the highest point of the area. It will not be different today. We set off to the highest mountain in Sardinia, which is Punta la Marmora with a height of 1,834 m above sea level.

The mountain is located in the heart of the island. We drive an hour by car through the winding roads of Cala Gonone. Once we reach the parking lot to a height of 1,504 m, we are there. Even in December, the temperature is around 15 ° C, which is not bad at all. So take out your trekking shoes, apply sunscreen and set off.

We start on an asphalt road, later the road turns into a narrow nature trail. After about 45 minutes walk we reach the second highest peak of Brunc Spina. We have wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Below this peak it is possible to see the cable car and the slopes. Thyme smells everywhere and cows graze. We are afraid of them in places, but they seem to be used to tourists. The hike is easy, ridge with a small elevation gain on clear paths. But be careful, it is not marked. We prefer to check the route regularly according to the map on the phone.

The path continues along the path along the ridge. After a minimum of 30 minutes, we reach the next peak of Punta Paulina, which measures 1,792 m above sea level. At its beginning is the rocky peak of Punta su Sciusciu.


We go around this peak on the eastern slope, we reach the ridge, after which we are already approaching our destination at Punta La Marmora. Here we also meet the first tourists. At the top is a huge iron cross, about 5 meters high. The view of the landscape is unreal, peace and quiet everywhere, surprisingly it doesn't blow here at all. Part of the way back to the car is the same and part is bypassed elsewhere. There are more possibilities here. In total, we traveled 16.8 km today. The whole circuit took us about 4 hours of walking.

Satisfied, we return to Cala Gonone, where we treat ourselves to a Sardinian bottarga specialist for dinner. That you've never heard of this dish? It is a cucumber caviar that is dried and served most often with pasta. In addition, they serve us typical Sardinian bread, which looks like big chips, and delicious local wine.
