Location profile: Sardinia Small enough to be classified as an island but big enough to be a universe in itself, Sardinia lies about 120 miles west of the Italian peninsula. Its coastline is probably among Europe's most attracting. Its waters teem with fish and shellfish. Its broad valleys turn into golden oceans of wheat in summer. Its rugged mountains, pocked with caves, are home to large flocks of sheep that feed on pungent wild herbs and produce a cheese which is difficult to forget. Nestled into its silent olive groves are some of the continent's oldest archeological remains, like the nuraghi, dating back to the second millennium B.C. Its people speak a language which is incomprehensible to all other Italians and love to dress up in elaborate costumes in occasion of special events and festivals. … a nuraghe
