Monte Arcosu, Uta

(5/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
