Monte Arcosu, Uta

#10 of 23 in Wildlife in Province of Cagliari
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Monte Arcosu is a mountain in the Sulcis massif, in southern Sardinia, Italy. It has an elevation of 948m.The mountain has a characteristically truncated cone shape, resulting from the differential erosion which followed its formation during the Variscan orogeny. The massif is formed by a granitic intrusion from the Carboniferous, lying on a Paleozoic schist basement and in turn surmounted by Paleozoic scists. The Variscan orogeny removed the upper schist layer from all the massif's peaks but Monte Arcosu, modelling it and showing the granite along the steep slopes.

  • Access is a bit difficult: from Capoterra, take the direction of Chiesa Santa Lucia and then a little further, Oasi WWF with a road then wagon trail about 3 km up to the building of the WWF Monte Arcosu. The guardian advises the SN1 about 1 hour trail, we did 2 hours with a child of 3 years and a pregnant woman 7 months in tongues (not very careful because the trail follows the stream dry with pebbles and monte and down hill). Very nice walk in the late afternoon, even if we didn't get to see the deer, but a few lizards, butterflies and a family of boars (behind a large enclosed by wire with an observation behind a wooden fence post).

  • We were welcomed by a group of students from UTA, which enriched the expert explanations canna led us by Antonello on the Sentiero Natura SA. On a day when the Sun is shining not too hot, we recommend a longer nature trail as canna. Many thanks Antonello and many greetings to Boubakar, and the other students from UTA.

  • Beautiful protected area, ideal for those who want to do hiking trails at various levels, but also for those who want to enjoy a lunch in the middle of nature. Recommend arriving to the top to enjoy the view.
