Brief description

This is a rather short stage that allows you to dedicate the first hours of the day to visiting sites that are testimony to Buggerru’s mining history.

Not to be missed, the monument to the fallen miners in the 1904 massacre, the mining museum and the Henry gallery, the Grotta delle Lumache (Snail Cave) and the Grotta S’Acqua Gelada (Cold Water Cave).

The remaining part of the stage is characterized by the beautiful coastal landscape that takes you to the extraordinary dune system of Portixeddu.
