The tower is extremely well preserved and its history is unexpectedly interesting.Thhe guided tour we have followed was very interesting. It is a nice complement to a exaustive visit to Cagliari.

This tower offers great views as the other reviews say. I would like to add one information...there is one more tower located in Il Castello called Torre Elefante (they look similar) - dont bother with that one, go for this one only as San Pancrazio is significantly higher and price is the same.

There's not much else to say. This is the highest point in town, so you can see nearly everything from here. Despite the age of the tower, its still in great condition.

This is the tallest tower and as you walk up the view gets better and better . At the top the whole city is laid out below you and the far reaching views are spectacular . It cost 4 euros for an adult . If you can walk up steps and don't mind heights this is a must !

If you do not have height sick, and you are not afraid to climb up, then this is the perfect place for the view of the city. When you are up you can also look with the available free binocular at the city.

Exhausting in hot weather but well worth it! Gives you a different viewpoint form the "elephant" tower so do them both.
