Roccia dell'Elefante, Castelsardo

(800+ reviews on the web)
Raising its trunk at the side of Highway 134, you'll find Roccia dell'Elefante, an elephant-shaped rock used in ancient times as a necropolis. Originally part of the Rocky Mount Caseddazzu, the rock broke off centuries ago and rolled downhill before coming to rest at its current location. The inside walls feature carved bovine horns, representing the bull god revered for his strength and associated with death and regeneration. You'll also find furnishings meant to remind the dead of their earthly homes. Put Roccia dell'Elefante on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Castelsardo trip itinerary planner.

  • It seems only a stone with one form simpatica, keeps questions of our ancestors. It is worth looking at in its interior.

  • It's funny, but it's on the low side of a road where it is hard to stop. It's fun but if it's not passed road don't go by, there is no great interest.

  • Carina attraction if you pass in the area, especially for children. It's still a pleasant and scenic road even without necessarily having to stop here but if you do the street why not! Cute perhaps better exploit (was half covered by a barricade for a recent landslide)
