Devil's Saddle (Sella del Diavolo) Tours

There is a distinctive rock formation on a promontory near Cagliari that, because of its shape, is known as the Devil’s Saddle - Sella di Diavolo in Italian. The promontory overlooks the city’s popular Poetto Beach.

The easiest way to see the Devil’s Saddle is simply by visiting the beach, but there are also hiking trails along the promontory for a more close-up look. Hikers can walk along what began as an ancient Roman road and can climb up to one of the points on the Devil’s Saddle.

Among the sights to see near Devil’s Saddle are the remains of a Roman cistern, an 11th-century monastery, and fortifications from World War II. There are even Punic ruins to see that date from the 6th century BC, before the ancient Roman era. A Punic temple was built on the promontory, dedicated to the Goddess Astarte. For many visitors, though, the main draw is the panoramic view from the top of the hill.

Practical Info

Sardinia is popular with outdoors enthusiasts, so there are plenty of chances to hike and even kayak around the promontory that includes the Devil’s Saddle. The hike up to the Devil’s Saddle is of medium difficulty.
