Worth a look if in the area, not sure I would make special effort to visit though as not much else in the area. We stayed at Castelsardo so was maybe 15min drive away.

We loved it, it was easily accessible and exactly like in the pictures we had seen. A landmark not to miss that even our picky teens enjoyed.

O your way to Castelsardo you will pass by probably. It is only a short stop. See it, use your imagination, make a pic ... and especially the little kids will fantasize. That's about it.

You should see this rock! It’s awesome and it only takes about 5 minutes ;) our kids waited in the car while my husband and I took the obligatory picture ;)

I want sure what to expect; but it does look like an elephant. Lol; I only wonder when it’s trunk might fall off. Definitely worth seeing.

Hannibal is known to have brought elephants from Africa to Italy in Roman times..So it is quite startling to meet one of these giants nowadays. This rock really looks like a stony elephant. You can see still many more bizarre rock formations in Capo Testa.

Bit of a disappointment. Just an ugly rock on the side of the road. Difficult to stop and observe. Something you can do without... Check out the beaches instead!

Thank Arvid K
