General tour description

Long before they got more modern roads, people here did not have any other choice but using more difficult and mostly unpaved tracks for visiting eachother in neighbour valleys, or for trading. . Today we use one of those former connection paths between Fataga and Santa Lucia crossing the ridge of Amurga. Wonderful views on the way over the valley of Tirajana, together with a surprising experience along a “forgotten” river bed near to Santa Lucia, more knowledge about the natural origin of the area, and the bus transfers by public bus today , make part of this wonderful hike day.
