Guide + Chauffeur + Entrance Fees included

08.30 Departure from Cagliari towards the Sulcis Area. After one hour drive we will reach the west Coast of the Island for the visit of the futuristic work on the promontory of Masua, actually a port built in 1922-1924 at 37 meters height serving as the mineral production hub in the west coast of Sardinia and its tormented sea. Today the site belongs to the mining archaeology and may be visited with guided Tours. The entrance overlooks the sea and faces the Pan di Zucchero, a natural monument 132 meters high, shaped by the power of the wind and the sea. At the end of the 1 hour guided visit, transfer to the Mine of S. Giovanni for the visit of the Grotte di Santa Barbara 1.30hrs. In 1952, during a shaft excavation and tearing down a rock wall, the mine workers discovered the spectacular view of a magnificent extended natural cavity. The Cave, remembering a sumptuous Cathedral, has remained unknown for millions of year sheltered in the heart of the mountain. Return to Cagliari by 14.30
