What to expect

A cultural and naturalistic tour to discover the exciting breathtaking views on the headland of Devil's Saddle, one of the symbols of the city of Cagliari.

This natural area is a limestone headland which formed during the Miocene epoch. Legend says it was created during an epic struggle between angels and demons in the skies over the Gulf of Cagliari. Lucifer, thrown from his horse, lost his saddle. Falling from the heavens, it landed on the headland, giving the ground its unique shape.

During the tour you'll have to the chance to experience the rich colors and smells of the local plants close up. You'll have a breathtaking view from atop the Saddle – the entire southern coastline of the island, all the way from Cape Carbonara to Cape Teulada. On the way up you will see numerous fossils and famous archaeological ruins, physical signs of human presence which still preserve several ancient tales of Cagliari and Sardinia: the remnants of ancient temples, medieval churches, ancient coastal towers, and the modern towers of World War II.

You'll be able to fully enjoy the coastal landscape of Cagliari and take advantage of many photographic points. The Saddle is a world where you can touch and smell the local species of plants, learning about them as well as some of their curious anecdotes and popular stories.

The excursion is suitable for everyone. It is recommended to bring comfortable shoes or hiking boots, at least 1 liter of water, and a strong desire to walk.
