Great museum
6/2019 • Kaverit
Visited the cork museum in Calangianus; very interesting to see. A guided tour , and a video in a lovely old building. Learned a lot about how cork is made. There are plenty of lovely things to see made from cork. Visit took about half an hour, followed by a small shop. The museum doesn't have a cafe, but this isn't a problem.We went for a coffee close by - it is a lovely old village.
If you're in the area, go and see.

Everything about cork! Beautiful. Don't miss also the 4.000 years old Olive Tree close to Luras (not far from Calangianus). Quite and green landscape all around these small villages, perfect for relaxing in contact with the nature.

Worth an hours stay

Set in an old Capuchin friary which itself is worth the visit, the cork museum is a well set out exhibit of the industry. Also has a small shop.

This museum, situated in an old monastry in the centre of the town, shows everything about the “ manufactering “ of cork. This is the mail industry of the region. The guides, all volunteers, explain the way the cork is collected from the trees and the whole process of transforming it into the wellknow tap on the bottles of wine. And the old monastry in itself is worthwile visiting.

Go See the Museum of Cork!
5/2018 • Kaverit
Cool place to learn about cork - how it grows, how it's harvested, how it's processed. Saw how things have changed over the years. Saw many items made of cork. Saw how corks for bottles are made. Bought a cork purse, believe it or not. Staff was really helpful - we got a private tour with the person who was in the gift shop & she did it in English, which was great, because our Italian is horrible.

A Must Do on your way through Sardinia
9/2017 • Pariskunnat
We travelled to Sardinia overnight on the Ferry from Livorno to Olbia and decided to visit the quaint town of Santa Teresa di Gallura to stay overnight at the Hotel Corallaro with its beautiful beach for some down time, and the following day make our way to Alghero.

The next day we decided to travel via Calangianus and Tempio Pausiana to visit these ancient towns.

Calangianus has a notable Museum of Cork which is situated inside a beautiful 18th century complex which includes an old monastery of the Capuchins and the church of “Santa Maria degli Angeli”. The ancient granite structure was built by the Franciscan Monks in the 18th century.

The Museum is operated by “Contiamoci” the tourist-cultural association who also set it up. It was inaugurated in July 2011 but only opened to the public in May 2012.

The structure has two floors, inside the cells where the Monks lived on the ground floor are machinery and hand tools once used for cork manufacturing.

The large open area on the second floor is used for entertaining, talks, and exhibitions. The whole building has been beautifully restored keeping all the characteristics of the ancient building.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us an interesting tour. I knew cork came from trees but oh there is so much more to this ancient craft which is now carried on by huge factories at the bottom of the valley and are the main industrial employers in the area.

We had an excellent lunch at the Museum, local meats, cheeses, breads and olives, including the speciality ‘Pane Carasau’. This Italian flat bread with a crisp texture is seasoned with rosemary and se salt. It is said to have been made by the shepherds in Sardinia who used to take it into the hills when tending the sheep as they would be away for a long time and the bread would last for the duration.

Do visit the little shop selling all sorts of items made of cork, I was surprised how inexpensive they were and is an ideal place to buy your souvenirs and presents for the family back home.

Not only is Cork used for bottles of wine, it is made into all sorts of commodities, even clothing. In the nearby town of Tempio Pausiana there is a beautiful boutique which sells exquisite clothing made from, yes, you’ve guessed it cork!

As you leave this beautiful little town and see the cork trees and the sheets of cork drying by the roadside, then you recall the talk from the tour guide and everything makes sense.

Open from Monday to Saturday 10:00 to 13:00 & 15:00 to 18:00 hours.

An enlightening visit
10/2017 • Pariskunnat
We visited this small museum on a Saturday afternoon in October when lots of other museums in Northern Sardinia were already closed for the season. It was a real suprise to learn about the importance of the cork industry for this part of the island and instructive to be shown the entire process from tree to corks via exhibits and videos. In the small community of Calangianus, there is also the only school dedicated to the craft of cork working in Italy (perhaps the world?). Fascinating.

Did not realise how important this region was for cork. At one stage there was no one to touch them for world production. The impact locally is all explained here and the entrance fee is well worth paying

Interesting museum and excellent English speaking guide. Very glad we stopped here for a tour. Only 4 euro per person including guide. They close between 13:00-15:00. We arrived at 12:30 and had a half hour tour.

cork museum
10/2015 • Pariskunnat
I had heard about the region being really big on cork production and wondered how they turn the tree into the corks for bottles and then we found the cork museum to answer all my questions. Great place, really interesting and fantastic guide for precious little money.
