Cagliari is the biggest city in Sardinia with about one hundred and sixty thousand inhabitants (157,000) and is the main political, administrative, economic and cultural centre of Sardinia and the main port of the island.
It is an emblem of evolution, change, freshness and life surrounded by water. It is situated in south Sardinia, in the middle of the Angels Gulf and between the Molentargius and Santa Gilla lagoons. Walking through the streets of Castello you can sense the history of the most authentic Cagliari, between the present and the past; the ancient palaces and hidden churches where the narrow streets have changed little since medieval times.
You shouldn’t miss the magnificent Cathedral, the Royal Palace and the panoramic terraces of the ramparts of Saint-Rémy and Santa Croce, which during the summer nights are also the nightlife centre.
In the capital of the island it is easy to get lost in the Marina district maze, in front of the bustling harbour and savouring the smell of grilled fish. Above, you can see the Pisan walls of Castello, now a neighbourhood overlooking a sunny, cosy, Mediterranean city. Just below, the roofs are all equal in the district of Stampace, where you find the Sant’Efisio church, the place where the most important procession of Caglairi every year starts.
