You are in: 

It is set in the heart of the wood of Selene, a green area teeming with holm-oaks, sessile oaks and springs; while walking along its famous lanes, you can see through a thick vegetation the remains of a nuragh and two tombs of giants, built-up with local granite and recently restored, dating back to the XVth century b.C.

Beyond being the seat of the Court, of the Civil Hospital amnd of the Diocese, Lanusei boasts an astronomic observatory on the top of Mount Armidda, reported on various scientific journals as its position is extremely useful for observations due to the absence of pollution. The planetarium of the Gymnasium is a good complement to it. They are both open to the public.  
A great part of its territory is crossed by the 'Train in the Wilderness' that stops at the local railway station before entering the hinterland; during the journey it crosses the charming high grounds of 'Pizzu Cuccu' and of 'Su Carmu', from which you can appreciate the landscape of the green valleys below.

From the top of Mount Armidda the view is also amazing: it ranges from the characteristic rock of Perda Liana, to Mount Tricoli, from the porphyr ridge of 'Serra Coronedda' to the coastal plain.
