Dominated by the Malaspina Castle, built in early 1112 and which today remains the surrounding walls, the Nostra Signora di Regnos Altos Church and the towers controlling the Bosa town extends itself – with its pastel- colored houses – on the right shore of the Temo river, the only one navigable in Sardinia, while on the left shore rises the ex Cathedral of San Pietro, one of the most interesting roman-sardinian historical works. The origin of the city goes back to the Phoenician period with its unquestionable appeal, with its 800 century buildings for tanneries of Sas Conzas that reflect on the calm waters of the river and the antique area of Sas Costas surrounded by tiny streets and stairways. A very interesting and evocative excursion is that on the Green Train (Trenino Verde) from Bosa to Macomer coasting the beach of Pedras Nieddas (Black Stones).
