Ok, the Rock really looks like an elephant... but that's it, nothing else. Difficult to understand why this is rated as first attraction point next to Castelsardo... It is just fun, and a good souvenir picture. But the visit doesn't worth more than 5 minutes.

You'll come across this literally right by the side of the road. Other than the fact it does look like an elephant, he rock was carved out and still has chambers believed to have been used as a tomb.

Beautiful. Worth seeing. Very close to the main road anyway. But come early morning or you wont be able to photograph for people.

Its a nice by-the-road attraction, interestingly shaped rock. We stopped for about 2-3min, took some photos and continued on our way.

If you're passing by it's worth stopping but wouldn't go out of my way to visit. On the way to Castelsardo, via the very fast winding road.

Place you have to see. The origin of this rock is quite unique: part of the rocky complex of Monte Casteddazzu, it broke off and rolled down the valley along the road. Following a process of erosion, the rock assumed, from ancient times and in the collective imagination, the appearance of a primordial pachyderm with its trunk turned towards the... More

You just pull over to the opposite side of the road (there is no formal car park or facilities) but its worth going to see... More

Well, it's just a pice of rock, that looks like an elephant, and it's sort of in the middle of nowhere. We drove about 20-30 min from castle Sardo to here, I would say it's ok to look around the mountains and hills, rand suddenly a long The road side you'll see this rock.
