Medieval Sardinia: the Acquafredda Castle
Let's dive into the Middle Ages of Sardinia to meet one of the protagonists of Dante Alighieri's Hell.
In a fertile plain, among wheat fields, farms and streams that irrigate small vegetable gardens grown with care and patience, a volcanic relief of hard slippery rock suddenly shoots up to the sky. At the top, an old castle still clings on. A simple path uphill slowly leads us to discover the ruins of a village, the ancient cisterns for water collection and the remains of a small church. Finally, the castle appears before us, and from there we admire a landscape that glows with different colours every month of the year. Conclude this experience at the top of the castle with a glass of wine and tasty products of the Sardinian tradition.
