#1 of 18 in Things to do in Castelsardo
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.
