This one looked better preserved than the elephant tower. There's more foot traffic. Angles of the tower look better from the outside of the gates. It's on one end of the medieval street on which the cathedral (duomo) is located.

Very similar to Torre dell'Elefante, which is explainable as they were designed by the same architect few hundred years ago, the Tower of San Pancrazio is situated in the core of the historic centre and from its high position at the top of its area, it can offer one of the best 360-views of the city and beyond. However, I... More

This is the second of two historical towers which have lots of steps to get to the top to be greeted with a fantastic view. As long as you have the stamina for it the views are certainly worth it.

In fact there's no need to pay for this visit because you can get nice views to the city of Cagliari without paying nothing, so it really doens't worth your money.

The view across Cagliari from the upper part of the town is superb. This tower is well maintained and one of the sights to see

I was walking randomly in the historical area of Cagliari, and noticed this place. I like panoramic views, specially if they are not too expensive. This one costs 3€ and provides an amazing view of the whole Cagliari. Don't regret it at all!

Beautiful views, but the steps freaked me out a bit. First of all you climb some stairs within the building, no problem if you haven't a health problem with stairs generally. But when you go outside you then have to climb several floors to reach the top. Don't get me wrong, there are no safety issues and it's all under... More

A stunning building from 1305, making it the oldest tower still existing. It is also the highest (higher than the Elephant's). Quite a climb along the steep and narrow wooden stairs, but you will be rewarded with a spectacular view.

One of the towers of the old town area. It is a bit of a climb to get up to this historic core from the city. The museum is great, and this tower is very visible.

Outstanding view of the city and its environs. Impressive work of architecture. Well worth the modest entry fee and the very many steps. Protect your smaller children because the steps are a bit exposed, long and steep and handrail hard for little hands to hold. Chose a good weather day for the best long-distance views. (There are two very similar... More
