Monte Arcosu is a mountain in the Sulcis massif, in southern Sardinia, Italy. It has an elevation of 948 metres; the mountain has a characteristically truncated cone shape, resulting from the differential erosion which followed its formation during the Variscan orogeny. The massif is formed by a granitic intrusion from the Carboniferous, lying on a Paleozoic schist basement and in turn surmounted by Paleozoic scists; the Variscan orogeny removed the upper schist layer from all the massif's peaks but Monte Arcosu, modelling it and showing the granite along the steep slopes.

Monte Corrasi is a mountain in the territory of Oliena, Province of Nuoro, eastern Sardinia, Italy. It is a massif formed by white limestone
Montiferru is a historical region of central-western Sardinia, Italy. It takes its name from the eponymous extinct volcano massif. Extending for some 700 km², the massif had a maximum elevation of c. 1,600/1,700 m reduced due to erosion. The volcanic origin of the area is testified by the basaltic rocks of the seaside. Water sources are frequent, rivers from the area including the Rio Mannu; the economy is rural, based on agriculture and animal husbandry. Flora goes from the Mediterranean shrubland of the coast to olive and fruit trees in the mainland, up to pine and oaks in the more elevated parts. Wildlife include wild boar, Sardinian hare, European hedgehog, least weasel, the rare Sardinian wildcat, carrion crow, peregrine falcon, little owl, Eurasian scops owl and others; the rocks of Montiferru are the remains of an extinct volcanic complex, covering an area of about 400 square kilometres, active 3.9 to 1.6 million years ago during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs of the Earth's geological history.
The volcanic activity was at its most intense 3.6 million years ago. The volcano erupted a wide variety of lavas including basanite, phonolite, mugearite and trachyte, as well as small amounts of basaltic andesite and basaltic trachyandesite.

Mount Ortobene is a mountain in the province of Nuoro, in central Sardinia, close to the town of Nuoro. There are two main parks: "Sedda Ortai" and "Il Redentore". At the feet of the mountain is a nuraghe archaeological area including the Domus de janas tombs. On the mountain's top is the bronze "Statue of Christ the Redeemer" by Vincenzo Jerace. Flora of the Ortobene include holm oaks, while wildlife include Sardinian wild boar, marten, garden dormouse, Sardinian fox, European hare, Barbary partridge and lesser spotted woodpecker, Eurasian jay, blue rock-thrush, wood pigeon, Dartford warbler, Eurasian sparrowhawk, common kestrel, peregrine falcon and golden eagle. Grazia Deledda, Nobel Prize in Literature in 1926, wrote about Mount Ortobene: No, it's not true that the Ortobene can be compared to other mountains.
Monte Linas is a massif in the province of South Sardinia, in south-western Sardinia, Italy. It is composed of granite, includes numerous mineral deposits, such as zinc and lead. Peaks include Perda de sa Mesa, the highest peak in southern Sardinia, Monte Lisone, punta di San Miali, punta Magusu. Forests of Monte Linas at SardegnaForeste
In geology, a massif is a section of a planet's crust, demarcated by faults or flexures. In the movement of the crust, a massif tends to retain its internal structure while being displaced as a whole; the term refers to a group of mountains formed by such a structure. In mountaineering and climbing literature, a massif is used to denote the main mass of an individual mountain; the massif is a smaller structural unit of the crust than a tectonic plate and is considered the fourth largest driving force in geomorphology. The word is taken from French, where it is used to refer to a large mountain mass or compact group of connected mountains forming an independent portion of a range. One of the most notable European examples of a massif is the Massif Central of the Auvergne region of France; the Face on Mars is an example of an extraterrestrial massif. Massifs may form underwater, as with the Atlantis Massif.
