The Madonna statue of Trinita D’Agultu and Vignola sits 365 meters above sea level. She protects her surrounding area and its 2184 inhabitants.
Trinita D’Agultu and Vignola is in the north-western part of Sardinia and compromises about 136.6km of the beautiful coastline. The inhabitants have conserved the local dialect – Gallurese and ancient traditions for centuries.
The 1/2 km walk up the steep incline is not for the faint of heart; but once at the top of this 365m mountain the views are out of this world.
When the weather permits, I like to climb up the mountain and spend a few hours reading my book or just staring out blissfully at the blue sea.
Have you climbed the mountain to visit the Madonna?
This place looks so peaceful. Wonderful photos, thanks for posting and sharing them.
She´s beautiful, Jennifer 🙂
Oh, Sardinia is just exquisitely beautiful. Thanks for these lovely photos. It is uncanny how similar parts of it (the rock formation and the scrub) look to the Western Cape in South Africa. There is some kind of amazing geological connection between these two faraway places.
I would love to visit South Africa. It’s been a dream of mine for many years, one day … one day! Thanks for stopping by! 😉
Beautiful statue, and that view is to die for. Hope you soon get some good weather, so that you can go climbing and reading. 🙂
