Cagliari is the regional capital and the most populous city in Sardinia. The city lies on the beautiful gulf named Golfo degli Angeli, between Spartivento Cape and Carbonara Cape.
The city is rich in history and monuments that tell of the various populations who have conquered it: by the Carthaginians to the people of Piedmont through the long Spanish domination. However the current form of the city is due to the Pisans who took possession of the city in the thirteenth century. They built the medieval fortification of Castello (Castle), hence the name of the city, guarded by three towers – St. Pancras’, Elephant’s and Lions’- which along with the Cathedral are must-see places for those who visit the town.
