    Exciting visit to Porto Flavia and stunning views of the cliffs and the rock sugar loaf. The excursion, lasting one hour, is accompanied by a guide who tells the interesting story of the site and the life and conditions of miners. It is very advisable to book the visit, which we did by mail before leaving for vacation. To get in the car once at Masua Beach climbs to the right for a dirt road leading after several km to a parking space right near the entrance to the site. We got our place without any problems having the view in the morning, but I recommend starting with early because when we left there were cars everywhere and if we got for that hour we would have had great difficulty. This is probably also why under the parking lot is a small beach where many were heading. At the entrance of Porto Flavia is a kiosk where to eat and drink coffee and there are free public baths that we found clean.

    Access to the site deserves to be better informed. The site is well preserved and imagine the difficult life of the miners. We enter the gallery with a guide the Gallery leads to amazing views of the sugar loaf. This visit interested adults and delight children.

  • A place spectacular and thrilling feat of engineering, well run facility guide well prepared. Avoided during high season, arriving by car at the ticket office there are few parking lots.

  • Industrial site showing the genius of an engineer in the service of mining in the first half of the 20th century in this region of Sardinia. Some would say "an investment in the service of large international capital and multinational companies" in this case the Belgian mining company old mountain. Whatever it is it was well thought-out. Many visitors at weekends so it's best to book their visit in advance to make sure not to move for nothing (as much as it is a bit at the end of the world). Thanks again to our guide Renato for his knowledge and its availability.

  • Amazing venue for context and characteristics. The Gallery is open only on Sundays during the winter while it is open daily during the summer. It is accompanied by two guides in an experience that lasts an hour. Tickets cost € 10 in 2016.
