Tour description provided by Viator

Let's dive into the Middle Ages of Sardinia to meet one of the protagonists of Dante Alighieri's Hell and venture inside a big cave, one of the most important natural monuments of the island. In a fertile plain, among wheat fields and farms a volcanic relief of hard slippery rock suddenly shoots up to the sky. A path uphill slowly leads us to discover the ruins of a village, and the remains of a small church. Finally, the castle appears before us, and from there we admire a landscape that glows with different colours every month of the year. After touching the sky with your finger, we will feel as if floating between stillness and silence when we reach a very long cave down below, to admire huge stalactites, stone patterns created by water and rocky formations of rare beauty. For almost a kilometre, we will cross this natural wonder with excitement and amazement, before emerging from the exit at the bottom in the middle of dark green woodlands of centuries-old oak trees.
