In the middle of Sardinia there is a magical place where the nature is almost intact, and where are living the last wild horses of Europe. That place is the giara of Gesturi. The whole area, of about 4500 surface hectares, will offer you a wild experience in nature with this wonderful horses. The place has many path where to walk and many small ponds where the horses usually stays, mostly in summer due to the hot temperatures.
