- Welcome to Cagliari: The capital of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia, a sunny city, bathed by the sea and located on the southern coast of the island, in the plain called Campidano and in the inner part of the Gulf of Angels. An accessible and attractive place for many cultures throughout the history: Sardinian natives, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Pisans, Genoeses, Aragoneses, Catalans, Spaniards and the Piedmonteses.
- Elephant Tower The second highest medieval tower of Cagliari, built in 1307, 35 meters high, characterized by a small elephant sculpture symbolizing the impregnability of the city. During the Spanish ages it was used as a prison when, a cruel custom -showing the heads of the condemned to death at the gates- existed.
- The Bastion of San Remy Built by the Spaniards in the second half of the sixteenth century. The main staircase of the monument, built between 1897 and 1903, has two ramps that meet at half way in a landing which gives entrance to a covered promenade.
- The Roman Amphitheatre Located on the hill of Buoncammino (1st-2nd century AD), stands as an evidence of the presence of Roman civilization in Sardinia where gladiatorial combats and execution scenes of death sentences were held. Its estimated capacity is about ten thousand spectators. Currently it hosts prestigious theatrical and musical performances.
- Cathedral of Santa Maria Founded in 1217, holds precious objects of great religious significance, historical and artistic heritage. The northern portal is Romanesque, the southern, is in Gothic style. Inside, the chapels of the transept follow the Pisan Romanesque and Gothic style of Aragon, while the lateral ones follow a baroque style. You can also admire the Pulpit of Master William, dating from the twelfth century and originally housed in the Cathedral of Pisa.
