About The Castle retreat
Geolander is a Mountain Association that manages the refuge of the Medusa Castle located in the Municipality of Samugheo.
The castle was made in the twelfth century on the will of the powerful Judge of Arborea. In the thirteenth century the manor became a pledge of a debt contracted by Peter I of Arborea to the Maritime Republic of Genoa.
What is most striking about the fortress is its location, since it is located in the most stressed natural border between the Barbagia and its neighboring regions, and was built on the plateau of a overhanging rock.
Popular tradition has handed down over the centuries fables and legends set in the manor, now in ruins. The name of the fortress for example it should be ascribed to the daughter of a certain Forco, African-proclaimed king of the place; Queen Medusa, woman with magical powers, would make this castle a real mine of wealth, and also makes it unattainable to lovers visiting daughter.
The shelter is available as a base for all activities in particular for the Outdoor Sports, Trekking, Climbing, Canyoning and Yoga also.
Our association also offers hospitality to organized groups and individuals as a typical mountain lodge.
