Places of interest
The main square of the village was created in the early 20th century by diverting the stream that crossed it. Inside it lies a church dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel, which contains paintings by Carmelo Floris in the apse as well as a crucifix painted by Franco Bussu, an inhabitant of Ollolai. The oldest part of the church is a chapel dedicated to St. Bartholomew.
Near the town center, there is another church dedicated to Anthony of Padua, where the Feast of Saint Anthony is traditionally held along with a lighting of a bonfire.
In a valley surrounded by granite peaks lies a church dedicated to Basil of Caesarea, built by the Basilian monks and used, after the expulsion of the Basilians, by the Franciscans. The adjoining convent was built later.
The town is abundant in water features. The most famous is Gupunnio, the source of which is in the center of the village, and was recently renamed Regina Fontium. There is also the fountain of Su Sapunadorju, and a few hundred meters from the town, Su Puthu, which was once used as a watering hole.
