“A gem of Sardinian tradition and culture!”

Centropanificazione Monteleone Rocca Doria
Ranked #11 of 56 things to do in Sassari
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 August 2016

Sometimes, life surprises you!

We went on an organized Tui bus excursion called "Local Favourites" and ended up at this charming place. Who could have known?

There is apparently a long tradition in Sardinia of baking highly decorative breads for important occasions -- weddings, religious occasions, and so on. There is now a group of enthusiastic volunteers who are both preserving and reawakening an interest in this art.

Barbara, our guide, is an English lady who has lived in Sardinia for 50 years and is very knowledgeable. She happily told us about the pieces we were seeing, the history of breadmaking, and the stories about the people from Monteleone Rocca Doria. She was a fantastic guide!

Add to all of this that the village is atop a small mountain at the top of a very step road (our bus managed fine, though) and you can add quaint streets and beautiful views to the list of reasons to take a look.

Don't miss it. Really!

This tiny village is perched on top of a very high hill. The road is very winding ,and at the top the views are spectacular. In the village there is a bread museum which seems to be run by a English women. She will tell you the history of bread making in this part of Sardinia, very interesting. When you visit the museum they will give you sample of the local wine and biscuits. Which you can also purchase .

Name does not sound so interesting but this was quite interesting place. Plenty of examples that are handmade, some items are so decorative that it is hard to belive those are made from bread...

Visited early July. What a wonderful experience we had viewing bread designs as old as 50! The small village holds 80 inhabitants, it's like going back in time!

We were made so welcome by all, especially Barbara, who was a mind of information. And the wine sampling went down a treat!

Thank you all!
