Forts to explore in Sardinia
Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and an autonomous region of Italy. The island attracts more than a million tourists from both Italy, from the rest of Europe, and, to a lesser degree, from the rest of the world. According to statistics, tourist arrivals in 2016 were 2.9 million people.
The bastion of Saint Remy is one of the most important fortifications in Cagliari, located in the Castello district. The name derives from the first Piedmontese viceroy, Filippo-Guglielmo Pallavicini, baron of Saint Remy. At the end of the 19th century, it was monumentally transformed into a staircase, surmounted by the triumphal arch, which gives access to a covered walkway and a large panoramic terrace.
