Castelsardo

The walled seaside citadel of Castelsardo is a delight for craft lovers, with tiny shops crammed with all kinds of souvenirs, particularly woven baskets. The appropriately shaped Roccia dell'Elefante (Elephant Rock) on the road into Castelsardo was hollowed out by primitive man to become a domus de janas (literally, "fairy house," in fact a Neolithic burial chamber).
