make sure to ask Marco and Tiziana at BB Pedra Rubia how to get there. it is not always open actually. normally only on weekends, bank holidays or on demand. people are very friendly so it shouldn't be a problem

We had the luck that we got a fantastic guide just for ourselves in english, as everybody else was with the italian group. She was really nice and told us interesting stories about the place, and gave even tips about what is worth to see in Sardinia. Porto Flavia is a fascinating place with spectacular views, well worth the visit!

It should be the most interesting mine to visit, right on the edge of the sea with the Pan di Zucchero rock right in front... More

Porto Flavia is a place full of interests, however i wish i could... More

This is an amazing place - both for its location and its history. Getting there (you need to get to the village called Masua) you will enjoy breathtaking views of the coastline and then you can learn about astonishing history of Porto Flavia as well as mining industry history on Sardinia. The visit is guided and the guide tells about... More
