    Small but interesting site. Only takes 5 minutes to have a peek at.
    Almost no signage though and google maps initially sent us and our hire car down a rutted dirt track to the middle of nowhere where a disgruntled looking farmer looked at us suspiciously until we turned around.
    We tried apple maps instead and found the place a good mile or two away!

    We walked here from the central city.
    This cemetery is huge and has an amazing collection of funerary architecture. It is quite amazing and we found it interesting.
    You can continue on to walk through the pleasant gardens which are adjacent to the cemetery, and then on to the large cathedral of Bonaria. All three sites worth some time and should be done at the same time.

    The monument to Eleonora d'Arborea is a work of two Florentines: the sculptor Ulisse Cambi and the architect Mariano Falcini and a tribute to an amazing woman. The statue was inaugurated in 1881.
    Eleanor of Arborea was one of the most powerful and important judges of Sardinia, and Sardinia's most famous heroine.She put in place the code of laws known as the Carta de Logu, which was in effect in Sardinia from 1395 until 1827. It gave daughters and sons the same inheritance rights and also punished rape.

    If you really want to see an ancient tomb better go to Nuraghe La Prisgiona. Unfortunately, they provide too little information about Nuraghi and it isn't very interesting to look at stones

    This place is in a rather hard to reach spot, you can take a detour on the way to Cala Goloritze. There is not much to see but you can walk around and read some information (in English as well).

    We were wonderfully surprised by this exceptional contemporary art museum, highlighting the works of artist Costantino Nivola (1911-1988). This modern museum has a stunning and tranquil setting on the hillside overlooking the small village of Orani. There are several buildings surrounded by lovely landscaping and centered on a peaceful plaza. You can view Nivola's work indoors and outdoors. His most recent sculptures are superb! One could easily spend an hour or so to enjoy the art, stroll the gardens and soak in the views with a cup of coffee or refreshment which is served at the small, onsite cafe. Entry is a modest 5 euros, and there are special exhibits beyond Nivola's art. We highly recommend including a visit in your itinerary to central and northern Sardinia.

    The statue was raised in 1901 as Pope Leo XIII decided to raise 19 statues of Christ around Italy to represent the 19 centuries of Christianity.
    The bronze statue is 7m high On 29 August there is an annual festival, people make pilgrimage here from the cathedral, stopping for Mass at Chiesa di Nostra Signora del Monte, and again under the statue.

    This is a landmark on Piazza XXIII Febbraio, near the harbor and ferry docks. It sits in the middle of a busy traffic circle. It is the ubiquitous monument to the great general that you will see in many towns in Italy.

    There is a sign in Piazza Emanuele which provides information on the statue. Briefly, it was dedicated to Carlo Emanuele III in 1786. He was, among other things, the King of Sardinia.

    The monument was erected in memory of the successful negotiations which resulted in the exchange of Christian and Muslim slaves in 1755. This was made possible by Royal intervention. The Christian slaves/captives were taken in 1741 on the Spanish island of Tabarca which is considered the first homeland of the inhabitants of Carloforte

    The statue is a sign that the people of Carloforte do not forget the Royal intervention.

    Iglesias cementery is everything but dead. It's monumental character can definitely surprise you. It is quiet and suitable for alternative tourism, something to enjoy in silence with a guidebook to discover the history behind the individual statues. In the cementery can be found also some monuments of the famous artist Giuseppe Sartorio. For the legends lovers, there is a great local story about the little girl with the circle, what you waiting for? Go discover the mistery.

    This monument sits in Piazza Mariano, a quiet park near Torre di Portixedda. It was erected in memory of those who lost their lives in WWI.
