Castelsardo

The walled seaside citadel of Castelsardo holds tiny shops crammed with all kinds of souvenirs, particularly woven baskets, but also rugs and wrought iron. The Roccia dell'Elefante (Elephant Rock) on the road into Castelsardo was hollowed out by primitive man to be used as a burial chamber. The local name for one is domus de janas (literally, "fairy house").
