Amazing view

You can go on the top by car. It is amazing view from the top on historic Cagliari and on the salt tanks with flamingoes. If you have time go to the park :)

We visited this park when it was 38 degrees C so it was a nice respite from the heat. There are lovely views from the top and at the bottom there are lakes with terrapins, ducks, etc. Peacocks roam around and gently trouble you if you have a picnic - not a problem. We were pleased to find some water... More

From here you can have a 360 degree view of Cagliari. It was included in our bus tour. The view is dominated by the saltworks and far away you can see the Poeto beach (considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches nearby).

easy to get to by bus. Well maintained park. Walked to the top for interesting views over the wetlands and flamingoes in the distance.

Great view on the top, and good park to see, animals around and relax, good for walking or just laying under the sun

A very nice place to get a panoramic image of both the lagoons populated by flamingos and of the city.

This was our first stop in Cagliari after flying in and preparing to head elsewhere. It's windy up there and cool in January as expected, but I'd imagine there aren't better views of the city. It reminded me a lot of similar views in Lisbon. Great city scape on one side and water with rock formations on the other. For... More
