Duration of the visit:
The guided tour of the Geosite lasts 45/60 minutes.
Today’s tropical scenery can help us imagine what Duidduru might have been like in the Miocene; the stratigraphy of the site and the richness of the fossils present are some elements that make the site interesting from a scientific point of view.
Fossil finds from the quarry
The fossils present in the area date back to the Miocene; the finds belong to marine animal species that still live in tropical shallow waters.
Their fossilization occurred by mineralization, and thanks to the sandstone the fossils have been preserved in an excellent way.
Some artifacts have been collected and studied; after a cleaning process by the paleontologists of the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Sassari and Nuoro, the fossils can be admired in the P.AR.C.
