The Elephant's Rock is a large boulder of trachyte and andesite, eroded by the atmospheric agents that gave it the shape of an elephant. It is about 4 meters high. The rock is located near Castelsardo, to the left of the old road that led from the hamlet of Multeddu to the village of Sedini.

The Elephant's Rock has a great archaeological importance, because two domus de janas, ancient tombs dating back to the pre-nuragic period, have been carved inside.

    It's worth seeing but only if you are nearby. Great rock for kids.

    Interesting place for quick stop. Offers also nice view on country around. Parking on side of main road, so need to be careful. Also very steep hill on one side so be careful when parking. Can be very crowded.

    Nice looking rock but not worth the drive out here. Skip it and do cooler things with your time!

    Redipuglia World War I Memorial

    Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

    The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
