Brief description

From the culture and economy of the sea, we return to the land of mines by walking along the spectacular volcanic cliffs of the south-west coast until we reach the mine of Bacu Abis where the coal mining activity began in the Sulcis coal basin.

Looking at the beauty of the coastal landscape with the panorama that reaches the limestone cliffs of Masua, we pass from the industrial archeology of the Seruci mine to the classical archeology of the homonymous Nuragic settlement.

In just a few kilometers, we are walking the through traces of 3,500 years of the territory’s history.
