Calangianus, one of the most extended town of Gallura, at 518 m a.s.l., situated over a plateau, it is part of the Natural Regional Park. The first human settlements date back to the Copper Era (2000 b.C.) with rests in the grottos of Monti Biancu and Li Conchi, and to the nauraghic period with the Giants Tombs of Pascaredda and li Paladini fountain, at the foot of Mount di Deu. Tracks of Roman network of roads nearby the Larai road-tender's house and in the Piras contrada. First written documents go back to the 1300. Its name derives from "galanga" which means root. The most interesting excursion takes to the Mt. Limbara, which dominates a great part of Gallura panorama; its major peak is Balestrieri point (1,362 metres).
