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.

  • First time I visit the wwf reserve; great place for a picnic and barbecue with friends. Children can play safely and enjoy the view of many animals. Will definitely be back

  • We drove by car with his wife and enjoyed the Italian mountain views. We did not walk was long, but it was enough to be photographed, a breath of mountain air, which is very clean because nothing spoils this pristine purity. The landscape was beautiful, so much so that you climbed to the top of the mountain. Many lizards and butterflies seen during walks.
