Serri, a small agro-pastoral center on the borders of Sarcidano, in the south of Sardinia, rises on a basaltic plateau, the homonymous Giara, at a height of about 650 m.
Part of the Authentic Villages of Italy, Serri preserves in its area important proofs of ancient populations who have crossed or lived in these lands: starting from the Nuragic period, passing through the Roman period and for the following ages, which make the small town of Sarcidano almost an open-air museum.
In the inhabited center you can visit churches and historic buildings, which rise in the oldest part, characterized by the presence of typical rural houses, with large courtyards and arched gates.
The main expression is the Nuragic Federal Sanctuary of Santa Vittoria, but the various nuraghi located in the area and the remains of the Roman statio of Biora are also worthy of particular attention.
Among the streets of the historic center, in a suggestive rural atmosphere, one can still admire the ancient crafts.
Sometimes, the housewives, respecting the old recipes and using wood-fired ovens, prepare the bread (cocois and civraxu), the pasta (frégula and pitzotis), the desserts (amarettus and pardulas) and much more, both for daily use, which on the occasion of folk festivals, using traditional ingredients. Meat and excellent oil are the basics of local recipes.
