Geo Paleo Sito

Sito paleontologico noto come cava di Duidduru

This geological and palaeontological site, also known as the Duidduru quarry, is an unparalleled locality in Sardinia, where visitors can marvel at a fossilized tropical seabed. The site’s visible rock stratification and geological fault make it a real educational training ground. Studies carried out by palaeontologists and geologists from the Archaeological Heritage Authority of Sassari and Nuoro, and by professors from the Earth Sciences Faculty at the University of Cagliari have revealed a marine environment datable to the Miocene. Various levels of stratification, numerous fossil reefs and a variety of palaeoenvironments can all be admired by visitors to the site.
