At 750 meters above sea level, Buddusò is mostly famous for its white granite quarries and its territory is covered with pastures, cork oaks and thick Mediterranean scrub. It is crossed by the Rio Mannu which enters the Lake Coghinas and the Rio Altana which flows into the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The territory, usual place for special stages of the World Championship Rally Italy Sardinia, was inhabited starting from the Neolithic period, as testified by a dozen Domus de Janas inside the town and over 50 collections in necropolises, scattered throughout the countryside. The following period is abundantly ‘told’ by 32 nuraghi some of which are still well preserved. The most important is the Nuraghe Loelle, 7 km from the village, made with worked segments, with steps and corridors running on two internal floors. Beside there are two small Giants’ tombs.
At 15 km from Buddusò, but in the neighboring territory of Bitti, there is one of the most important nuraghic complexes in absolute, the village-sanctuary on Romanzesu.

The country, of almost 4,000 inhabitants, had an economic development in the last decades of the twentieth century thanks to the extraction and processing of cork and granite, used all over the world. Obviously, it is also the material of traditional houses and many statues inside the country and in the modern art museum.
