A lovely walk with the reward of amazing views. Well worth all the effort, just carry plenty of water. I walked up the rose and back down path 101 I think this was a good choice, further to walk but better gradients.

The walk from Chiesa della Solitudine is a treat, well-marked, mostly shaded, plenty of variation and full of interesting birdlife. As with many popular Sardinian hikes, route 101 is clearly signed and you can't get lost unless you ignore markings and detour along one of...More

Walking route 101 takes a couple of hours on a good path (steep at times) to get to the statue at the top. It is a beautiful walk through trees which provide welcome and necessary shade, even in October, and passing some intriguing giant boulders...More

We walked to the Monte Ortobene and took in the massive view. It is nice that they put the cell towers next door so they do not interfere with the statue.
