The Grotte di Nettuno
(“caves of Neptune”) are among the most famous of Sardinia: they are located 24 km from the city of Alghero
, inside of Capo Caccia
. This place was unknown until the Eighteenth Century when a local fisherman discovered it by accident. And since its discovery, the turnout in this Sardinian cave has never diminished.
The tourists have two possibilities to reach it: the first, more convenient and fast, is to go by boat from Alghero and to reach the main entrance; the second possibility is to start from the center of Tramaglio
and to reach the cave by the Escala del Cabirol
, a staircase of 654 steps that winds around the headland of Capo Caccia. (more…)
