You will pass it as you enter the old town at the top of the hill. It is currently closed for repairs, but it is still pretty. It is a prominent feature on the skyline.

Not only could we not climb the tower for the view, but we could hardly see the tower for all of the plastic sheeting and scaffolding. I was disappointed that none of the guide books (all published this year) listed the closing. It looks like...More

The most amazing staircase around the back of the building. Very high steps - almost ladders. Well worth a visit

I and my friend were walking all around this city and unexpectedly find this tower. Interesting place, simple architecture but good choose for those who is interested in Cagliari history.

Similar to the Torre del Elefante, this tower was built in early 14th century. Part of old city fortifications, nowadays under renovation works thus cannot be visited inside.

It was completed in 1305 and is built on the city's highest point in the Old Town. One cannot climb the tower.
