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!
