We loved visiting the ancient Olive trees near Luras. We are so glad we were told about them. The drive was gorgeous, past the stunning lake too. Amazing to think how old they are. Long may they live!

Exactly what you expect, a small cluster of very old Olive trees. The oldest tree is protected with a barrier, but the other trees ( one is 2000 years old) you can explore. You are going there to see a group of old trees, so don’t expect any roller coaster or tacky attractions.

After reading all the positive comments, we decided to visit this place. Yes, everybody is absolutely right about how special it is to see a 4000 yr old tree. However, we were very disappointed when we saw how small the area was and that there was nothing more to do than looking at 3 very old olive trees. For us, the 10 minute visit was not worth the 45 min (x2) drive.

500, 2000 and 4000 year old olive trees. simply wonderful to consider what these have seen. thankfully mankind has not ruined them.

a bit difficult to find in the middle of nowhere, but prersevere, well worth it.

not some theme park, just natural history. be in awe.

2.50 euro entry fee. worth it.

This was not the easiest place to locate as the signs from Sant Antonio de Gallura were not easy to spot and the village of Luras itself was quite some distance from the olive trees. However once we had got there we really enjoyed our visit.
It is obviously very difficult to age these trees precisely but they are enormous, clearly extremely old but still producing fruit! The twisted forms of the branches and the multitude of different trunks is quite remarkably beautiful.
As a contrast we also visited the Surrau winery on the outskirts of Arzachena where we found some more venerable olive trees but these were only about 500 years old.

€10 for a family of 4 but worth it. Amazing to think the trees are so old. One they think is 4000 years old. We only stayed a few minutes but an interesting stop off.

Just 20 minutes to watch at the 3 trees and make a little tour around them.It is the oldest tree in Europa.You can stay down the tree and read a book and think how little we are. Very kind Girls at the reception.If You want You can Go on and drive the Road to Luogosanto.Beautiful Road but very narrow and You have to pay attention because no space for two cars togheter.

Olivastri Millenari - a group of wild olive trees, now protected in a nature reserve. The oldest olive tree is fenced off as it is nearly 4000 years old. Amazing.

The emotion of a hug with the ancient roots of the earth.
That is the feeling which wrap you when you arrive in this magic place where millenary wild olive trees seem to be guardians of the time dominating a wonderful landscape of a typical Sardinia valley.
Three magnificent trees are there. The patriarch, 14 meters high and almost 19 meters in circumference, and other two younger companions. The patriarch age is estimated between 3000 and 4000 years; he is known as the oldest tree in Italy and among the oldest in Europe, so earning him the title on National Monument.
The patriarch is enclosed and it's no possible to touch him because in the past some vandals have hurt him; fortunately it is possible to establish a contact with the other two and make you wrapped by the amazing branches and the superb crowns. A positive energy flows in this place ... like in the tree of life of Avatar!
The difficulties in finding the place e the absence of road signals and indications seems to be done deliberately to increase the emotion when you find it.
Indeed when you arrive a kind and knowledgeable girl welcomes you with an exhaustive explanation of the site.
No doubt! A magic touch to your holiday in Sardinia!
