SORGONO where we may spend the night. There is a fine Baroque church in the town and in the environs the splendid late Gothic church of San Mauro di Sorgono with an elegant rose-window in the facade.
The next day we continue north; after 8 km. (5 mi.) we leave Tonara, at the foot of Monte Gennargentu, to our right and climb to Ovodda (20 km. - 12 1/2 mi.) from Sorgono, passing the little church of San Pietro at a height of 800 metres (2604 ft.); at 30 km. (18 3/4 mi.) from Sorgono we leave the road to Fonni on the right to reach Gavoi with its church of San Gavino (16° century) and keep on along the lonely mountain road through Orant to descend at 61 km. (38 mi.) from Sorgono on to State Highway SS 129, turning right to reach NUORO.
