Quite impressive tower

The view across Cagliari from the upper part of the town is superb. This tower is well maintained and one of the sights to see

I was walking randomly in the historical area of Cagliari, and noticed this place. I like panoramic views, specially if they are not too expensive. This one costs 3€ and provides an amazing view of the whole Cagliari. Don't regret it at all!

Beautiful views, but the steps freaked me out a bit. First of all you climb some stairs within the building, no problem if you haven't a health problem with stairs generally. But when you go outside you then have to climb several floors to reach the top. Don't get me wrong, there are no safety issues and it's all under... More

A stunning building from 1305, making it the oldest tower still existing. It is also the highest (higher than the Elephant's). Quite a climb along the steep and narrow wooden stairs, but you will be rewarded with a spectacular view.

One of the towers of the old town area. It is a bit of a climb to get up to this historic core from the city. The museum is great, and this tower is very visible.

Outstanding view of the city and its environs. Impressive work of architecture. Well worth the modest entry fee and the very many steps. Protect your smaller children because the steps are a bit exposed, long and steep and handrail hard for little hands to hold. Chose a good weather day for the best long-distance views. (There are two very similar... More

Even though it takes a long time to climb up the wooden stairs that feel a little bit clumsy, this low priced sighstseeing point offers a great view of the city from both sides.

You get a great view of this city from quite a few vantage points as the old town is perched on top a hill I would either do the elephant tower or this one, as both are pretty much the same. The views are spectacular and worth the climb.

Well worth a visit, although they might get more traffic with kids going free. No kids under 6, as stairs are steep. the view is magnificent from he tower.

The view from San Pancrazio was super - we could see most of Cagliari and we enjoyed the breeze. Unfortunately the binoculars were not working -- we would have liked to see the flamingoes through them -- but it was well worth the climb..
