Pinuccio Sciola, world famous sculptor and still a resident of San Sperate suggested in the 60s to turn the village into an open air museum, sort of a skansen by putting muralsonto the walls of the buildings. The advice was taken and today you could visit one of the most fascinating villages in the world!

From the bus parking place we walked the main street of the town and we saw the many nice drawings on the walls, it was very quiet place until we arrived to the museum.

San Sperate was the first stop on a shore excursion from the Norwegian Epic. The town is covered with murals. As the murals age, they are replaced with new murals by new artists. My wife and I found this very interesting. The last stop on...More

There are unexpected art installations all over San Sperate. Many are sculptures, apparently by a well known Italian artist. My favourites are the murals, many of which are trompe l'oile, occasionally religious, occasionally folksy, often humorous. However, San Sperate suffers from the widespread Sardinian malaise...More

Loved the paintings and searching them out. Nice little town with few local products and craft shops
