AGGIUS AND VALLEY OF THE MOON
Aggius is dominated by an incredibly fascinating landscape of cork-oaks, granite rocks and thick Mediterranean greenery.
Aggius, located in Gallura’s heartland, is a quaint village with fine old houses built of granite stone, among the most outstanding examples of local folk architecture. As one might expect, the village economy is based on granite quarrying and processing; but Aggius also has a thriving tradition of hand-loom carpet making and weaving. Aggius’ choir, which the Italian writer D’Annunzio dubbed Gallura’s cockerel, stands out for its striking sounds on an island of impressive choir singing traditions. In 2005 the village was awarded the Orange Flag by the Italian Touring Club for its old town, environmental attractions and smoothly-run tourist services.
