Geocache Description:


The "Perda Longa" is a pyramidal monolith which rises perfectly vertical from the sea level. It dates back to the mesozioic age. It is placed in the first part of the coastline between Santa Maria Navarrese and Capo di Monte  Santo which is characterized by a high cliff which exceeds 280 meters in height.

The ancient sailors choose "Perda Longa" as a datum-point because it determines the south end of the Supramonte region which they called "Guglia", "Aguglia" or Agugliastra" (which meens small tower) because of its peculiar shape.

"Agugliastra" seems to be the origin of today's name of this region: Ogliastra.

From this point one has a fantastic view along the hole cliff of the eastern cost of this Region of Sardegna.

To get to the coordinates you can go there by car, or you may take a 2 hours hike from "Santa Maria Navarrese" throught" a fantastic nature.

And don't forget to stop looking at your GPS and enjoy the country side!
