The Devil’s Saddle

A route on the symbol of Cagliari, a promontory overlooking the Poetto beach and the Molentargius Lagoon, among wormwood and lentiscus plants, ancient places of worship and defensive towers ruins.

The small beach of Calamosca, beloved by the natives of Cagliari, far from the overcrowded Poetto beach, will be the ideal place to spend your time before starting the path that will lead us up to the Devil’s Saddle, whose sinuous profile identifies the skyline of Cagliari.

Walking on the chalky rocks, surrounded by lentiscus and euphorbia bushes, we will be delighted by stunning views of the Gulf of the Angels and of the city of Cagliari and we will come across roman cisterns, defensive towers and forts, while looking for the temple of Astarte.
