Sardinia’s Ancient Olive Trees
In my ongoing quest to showcase the beauty and wonder of Sardinia, and to share with readers the enchantments that this ancient island has to offer beyond its famous beaches, today I share with you the Olivastri Millenari di Santu Baltolu, or the ancient olive trees at Santu Baltolu. I have likened standing in the shade of these majestic beings to spending time in the company of ents and going to visit them to taking a pilgrimage to a holy site. If I listen closely to the leaves rustling and the branches creaking in the wind, I can hear the tree murmur its tales of long forgotten times and people.
