You’re planning to spend a holiday in Cagliari and, as you surely know, this is a very great city to visit. Since you’re there, we recommend you to visit also Sulcis-Iglesiente, a historical region in the south-western part of Sardinia.
The most beautiful places to see? These five:
Belvedere di Nebida
The first place is one of the most beautiful of Sulcis-Iglesias. Nebida is an old mining town in the municipality of Iglesias. From the belvedere, you can admire an unforgettable view. And a staircase will lead you to laveria La Marmora, impressive example of industrial archaeology.
San Pietro Island
You will visit one of the most beautiful islands of Sardinia. To get to San Pietro Island, from Portovesme take a ferry to Carloforte, the main town on the island. Once on San Pietro Island, the things to see are:
- The rugged coastline;
- Capo Sandalo;
- Cala Vinagra;
- Becco mining area;
- The saltworks.
Ecomuseo delle miniere di Rosas
The Sulcis area is also famous for coal mining. At one time, the territory was dotted with several mines, now abandoned. As the mines of Rosas: a fascinating open-air museum that narrates the social, historical and economic aspects of mining in this part of Sardinia.
Temple of Antas
It is an ancient Punic-Roman temple, located near the village of Fluminimaggiore.
According to many, this should be one of the most beautiful Sardinian beaches. It is spectacular for two reasons: the emerald colour of the sea and the pristine area where it is, where the only building is the ancient (and beautiful) tower. It can be reached from Masua walking along a path.
