The Sulcis - iglesiente region was known since ancient times because it was very rich in minerals (zinc, lead, copper and silver). Nuragic people, Phoenicians, Punics and Romans exploited the area: Romans used to call it “Metalla” because they sent condemned to hard labour to work in the mines... This site does not use cokie
We’ll visit Porto Flavia mine that ends in a breathtaking vista on the sea. It was dig in 1924 and it revolutionized the loading of minerals on ships: a conveyer belt collected the minerals from the galleries and then, by means of a jib, loaded directly on the ships. From Masua we’ll admire the wonderful Pan di Zucchero stack, a 134-meter high limestone stack raising in the middle of a wonderful bay.
Then we’ll go on toward Bugerru: we may decide to stop in one of the peculiar coves or enter the Fluminese valleys and visit the ruins of the ancient Antas temple and the 6-km long Karst grotto called “Su Mannau”.
