Capo Figari

Home of the Sardinian mouflon and many other protected species, it has also been the site of many important scientific discoveries

The promontory of Capo Figari is a protected natural area with naturalistic, historical and cultural value. Within the reserve there are numerous trails that can be covered on foot, by mountain bike and even on horseback.

At the highest point of the promontory, which reaches 344 meters, the view is breathtaking: the view goes from Limbara to the island of Tavolara, from the islands of Soffi and Mortorio to the most distant Corsica. Here is the former Navy wireless telegraphy station, inaugurated in 1890 and from where in 1932 the Bolognese Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi changed the history of modern wireless communications by creating a shortwave radio link to a transmitter installed in Rocca di Papa, near Rome.
Other military structures are present on the promontory, such as the Luigi Serra Coastal Battery used during the First and Second World Wars with its 4 stands, on a cliff looking out towards the horizon, offering the visitor a glimpse into infinity.
