    On the second day of the Sardinian adventure, we set out to discover Serra Orrios south of Orosei, in the footsteps of the Nuraghic civilization that inhabited Sardinia during the Bronze Age. Reaching the rock face of Sa Preta Istampata you will enjoy an exceptional view over vast plains to the sea, but if cycling uphill causes you problems you can choose to avoid this demanding section.Starting from Orosei, the Tour leads through the granite quarries located outside the city before climbing up the mountains to the rock face. Here, not only a fantastic view awaits you, but also an exciting descent to the main path. By now you have probably already exhausted your water reserves to tackle the strenuous mountain stage, but don't worry: a fountain awaits you at the side of the road a few kilometers ahead.After the Cedrino Lake, the path leads again northwards and shortly afterwards to the Nuragic Complex of Serra Orrios, one of the most important and best preserved archaeological sites in Sardinia.From here you go around the Tuttavista Mountain, which really lives up to its name: from its top you can enjoy a spectacular view. The remaining twenty kilometers towards the destination in Orosei are free of altitude. Located almost at the end of the Tour, the village of Galtellì is the ideal place for a well-deserved break in one of the delicious restaurants that are found on the road.
