Photographer's Note

We left the church of San Pietro on the Golgo Plateau and headed for the ascent to Bacu Goloritze, which was our route to Cala Goloritze. We passed by some of the things for which the Golgo Plateau is famous. This is one of the As Piscinas waterpools, which were used for ritual bathing by the indigenous Nuragic civilization which populated the area between 1800 -500 BC.
In the WS there is a photo of the Su Sterru abyss. I couldn’t get a very good shot of it as you might expect there are barriers and the light/dark contrasts made exposure almost impossible. It’s in the WS purely for interest value. At 295m (967ft) deep, it is said to be the deepest chasm in Europe.
Also in the WS is one of several wild olive trees thought to be about 1000 years old.

Another thing the Golgo Plateau is famous for is the wild pigs which roam freely.
