Masullas is a small village with a bit more of a thousand inhabitants, encased in the heart of Marmilla’s area. It rises at an altitude of 129 meters above sea level, in the south area of Monte Arci, one of the most beautiful areas of the homonymous Regional Park.

To describe Masullas through colors, we should use: green, like the hills that surround the village, black of the obsidian, Sardinia’s black gold, and red of the pomegranate, the fruit symbol of the community.

The village came to be unintentionally  and with strong religious connotations. Masullas’ history is connected to three churches. Two small community centres developed around the churches of Saint Leonard and Saint Lucy. With the construction of the church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Graces, these two hubs  came together and formed the current town. 

In agreement with different research studies, the newborn small town was really important because it was center of passage from the area of Campidano to the inner territories. Here, travellers used to stop during their travels. During the stay, they set up “masones” (refuges), hence the name of the town. , A different hypothesis notes that the toponym descends from the latin “masiullas” (small home) or “Mansio” (small rural centre)
