It is one of the key points of Cagliari. You do get a very nice view all over the city and when you escalate the stairs, you access the upper part of the city. It you are lucky, you may take part to a party upstairs, as it happened to me as we climbed to find a dj and music night going strong. You cannot miss it as it is pretty much in the city center.
Huge neoclassical structure built in the late 1800's early 1900's. Large limestone blocks used to build the huge archway. Very imposing. From the terrace on top, panoramic view over the rooftops and City of Cagliari. Grand stairway to get to the terrace. Shouldn't miss it if your in Sardinia.
