Stop At: Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria, Piazza Bonaria, 09125, Cagliari, Sardinia Italy
Accompanied by a local guide, you will visit the Basilica of Bonaria, the sanctuary is the oldest part of the complex and was the first example of Catalan Gothic architecture in Sardinia. In 1324, during the siege of Castel di Castro, the infant Alfonso had a fortified citadel built on this hill, called in Catalan Bon Aire or "good air". In 1326 Pisa left Sardinia forever and, in 1335, the king donated the area of Bonaria to the friars of the Order of Santa Maria della Mercede, at the time in its greatest splendor, who had a convent built with the annexed small church, Catalan-Aragonese style.

Stop At: Parco Naturale Molentargius-Saline, Via la Palma snc Ex Saline- Stagni di Molentargius, 09126, Cagliari, Sardinia Italy
The wetland of Molentargius, since the divestment of the salt extraction activity, which took place in 1985, has undergone a process of redevelopment and transformation into what is now one of the richest species of birdlife in Sardinia. The Molentargius pond has been the most important site in the Mediterranean basin in recent years as regards the nesting of flamingos. The park, in addition to hosting a large variety of habitats and species of Community importance, still retains traces of its past as evidenced by the fascinating buildings of the early 1900s of the Salt City and ancient industrial machinery.
Duration: 10 minutes
Stop At: Monte Urpinu, 09129, Cagliari, Sardinia Italy
Monte Urpinu is an urban park in Cagliari, located in the homonymous neighborhood.
For centuries dominated by wild nature, inhabited by animals such as foxes, hence the name Urpinu, which in Sardinian means Volpino, in the nineteenth century the owners, the Sanjust of Teulada, plant numerous Aleppo pines.
During Fascism the hill was purchased by the Municipality of Cagliari and declared the first urban park in the city. However, the municipal property is only partial, and part of the hill is used as a quarry and another, during the Cold War, with a military base, with numerous fuel tanks connected, via pipelines, to the port and airport. In the eighties the municipality practices an important redevelopment of the park, with reforestation and closure of the area with fence.
Today the park extends for 350,000 m², which will become more with the disposal of the military area, with suggestive points of view on Cagliari and Campidano, the Molentargius pond and the Poetto beach (Su Poettu). Viale Europa runs along the ridge along its entire length.
The most widespread botanical species, not all spontaneous but suitable for the warm and semi-arid Mediterranean climate and limestone rocky soil, are the Aleppo pine, the olive, the carob tree, the holm oak, the mastic, the tree spurge, the alimo, the alaterno, the phyllirea, the bagolaro, the Canarian pine.

Stop At: Quartiere Castello, Compreso Tra Via Manno, Viale Regina Elena Viale Anfiteatro Via San Girogio, 09100, Cagliari, Sardinia Italy
Castello (Casteddu de Susu in Sardinian, trad. In Italian Castello Superiore) is the main of the four historic districts of the city of Cagliari. It rises in a prominent position, on a limestone hill, about one hundred meters above sea level. Popularly the neighborhood is indicated without the article.
The Pisans founded this district in the thirteenth century, fortified it, providing it with walls, towers and ramparts and transferred the seats of civil, military and religious power from the Giudicato capital of Santa Igia, which they had previously destroyed, decreeing the end of the same judgment of Càlari. Since then, under every domination, from the Pisan one (XIII - XIV century), to the Aragonese-Spanish one (XIV - XVIII century) and Piedmontese (XVIII - XIX century), until the second post-war period the Castle hosted the palaces of power and the noble residences, so much so as to identify with the city, which not by chance in Sardinian is called Casteddu. The neighborhood is still accessed through the ancient medieval gates, open in the walls that still surround most of the perimeter of the Castle, isolating it from the rest of the city.
The Castle currently houses important institutions, such as the Prefecture and the Council Chamber of the Metropolitan City of Cagliari in the premises of the Royal Palace, located in Piazza Palazzo.
The Parrocchia del Castello is named after Santa Cecilia and has its headquarters in the Cathedral Church, the main church of the Archdiocese of Cagliari, also in Piazza Palazzo.
The University of Cagliari also has its headquarters in the Castle, in the eighteenth-century building which houses the offices of the Rectorate.
