Galtellì (Garteddi in Sardinian) is a beautiful village in the Province of Nuoro, Sardinia, located about 80 km from the airport of Olbia.
Galtellì was a historic episcopal see, in the current diocese of Nuoro, in the territory of the ancient sentence of Gallura and, in particular, in the territory of the Barony. It has an important heritage of historical, cultural and environmental resources and is one of the better-preserved historic centres in Sardinia, with low whitewashed houses with patios and loggias. Galtellì has numerous churches, the ethnographic museum and the Literary Park dedicated to Grazia Deledda. The cathedral of Saint Peter houses a cycle of Romanesque frescoes. The proximity to the sea (Galtellì is only 9km from the Gulf of Orosei) makes the town a destination point for those staying on the coast, but visitors also attend the numerous events and cultural initiatives that take place year round. The innovative concept of “albergo diffuso” or widespread hotel, a structure of more than 100 rooms in the villages with centralised services (reception, workshop rooms, offices, auditorium, amphitheatre, etc.) is another appealing characteristic.
Galtellì is a municipality listed in four important national lists: Borghi Autentici d’Italia (Genuine Villages of Italy), Parchi Letterari d’Italia (Literary Parks of Italy), Bandiera Arancione (Orange Flag, a touristic and environmental quality mark by Touring Club of Italy) and Legambiente Turismo, which promotes the development of good strategies and practices for the sustainable tourism by setting up a new way of discovering and living in Italian places.
