Saint Remy rampart
Built in the late 800's, the Bastione di Saint Remy is the most important fortification in Cagliari and presents one of the best view of the city. It connects the “Castello” (the old town and highest area of the city) to the districts of “Marina” and “Villanova”. Dedicated to Baron Saint Remy, the first Piedmontese Viceroy, it features a mighty double staircase surmounted by an imposing triumphal arch and a facade of white limestone. The stairway leads to a covered promenade and to the panoramic Umberto Terrace.
