Such a position forced the population to build very unusual architectural structures: the small houses present front entrances that sometimes vary in height because of the configuration of the land. If you are quite willing to put the clock back, take a walk along the steep and tiny streets of the village: you will admire schist-stone façades, wrought-iron balconies, hanging balconies, even a fine Art-Nouveau building and decorous nineteenth-century small buildings.
A long time ago, all the territory of Seui was covered by a luxuriant forest of holm-oaks; nowadays, only the forest of Montarbu survives, extending to the south of Mount Tonneri, which consists of a series of rocks characterized by perpendicular cuts on one side. Among the various specimens of flora and fauna that such an amazing naturalistic oasis contains, the rarest one is the wild peony, called 'gennargentu rose' due to its beautiful flower. Moreover, this land is full of natural bowels; one of these is in the forest of Montarbu, precisely in Cerasia place. It measures 850 metres, partly open to the public, partly open only to experts.
In 1827 general Alberto La Marmora discovered in the territory of Seui a mine of anthracite. For a century and more, it represented a source of wealth; nowadays, there are only a deserted mining village and a coal washer structure left, both open to the public. Another piece of industrial archeology is the railway, the only one in the world that has a shorter gauge. In fact, the line Arbatax-Mandas-Arbatax is still crossed by the 'train in the wilderness': travelling on it is a wild ad unique experience among the most uncontaminated nature.
