La Madonna di Trinita D’Agultu | 365m Above Sea Level

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.

Isola Rossa & La Marinedda in the distance.

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?
