“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

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 the place in a really interesting way, with great passion. Unfortunately the visits are guided only in Italian, so if you don't speak Italian you really have to go there with someone who does, as the information given by the guide is really great and makes sense of the visit.
