Surrounded by high mountains, the quarter faces southwest towards the sea.
On the way to Iglesias, the territory spreads out amongst the mountains, where high up windy roads and sheer cliffs dominate, a place where many ruins of dwellings and structures once used in mining activities can be distinguished.
The economy of this town was originally based on agriculture and animal rearing for a long time.
Since the second half of the 800s, the economy was, for more than a century, almost entirely linked to the mines; Su Zurfuru, Arenas, Gutturu Pala, some of the abandoned mining sites and villages that can still be visited.
At present it is concentrating on the tourist and environmental sector.
