A lovely park with plenty of history, Monte Urpinu also offers unparalleled views of Cagliari and Campidano. The urban green space has belonged to the city of Cagliari since the government bought it during Fascist times. Over the years, it has transformed, including the closing and reforestation of a section that once held a military base during the Cold War. Today this natural attraction serves as a popular spot for picnics, outdoor activities, and photography. Snap great shots of the panoramic views from this vantage point and take notice of the many kinds of trees here, including the Aleppa pines, which were planted in the 19th century. Use our Cagliari tour planner to add Monte Urpinu and other attractions to your Cagliari vacation plans.
