First stop at the little town of Villacidro, where we'll visit the ancient washhouse, the building, built in 1893 on a design by engineer Enrico Pani and due to the metal part from the Florentine foundry of Pignone, has a series of masonry tanks, connected by a water supply pipe and characterized by an inclined plane to facilitate washing clothes. The cover closes a C-shaped plan with pavilions adorned with fake openings, always metallic, and it is required above all for the sinuous and enveloping movement of the supporting decorations, according to the principles of Liberty. Of the stone source remains one of the masks used as a torch for the water, while figures of squatted lions symmetrically arranged on the real source have disappeared.
After we'll drive towards the waterfalls, a sheet of water cuts through the rock and passes through a lush, scented forest. It is the image that nature has painted around Villacidro, in the Medio Campidano area, embedding it in one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Sardinia.
Sa Spendula, name of the locality in which it is situated, means 'the cascade': it is the sudden fall of Rio Coxinas, which originates at Santu Miali (in the picturesque park of Monte Linas), in three consecutive water drops with a maximum 60-metre high altitude gap. The waters form three natural pools in the same number of fall areas and flow into a gorge of special natural value, dominated by a granitic aiguille, known as Campanas de Sisinni Conti.
In autumn and winter you will be enchanted by its vigour, while during the summer you will be impressed by the evocative light in the evening and the inebriating cool that you will experience amidst the oleanders and holm oak woods.
After a nice walk relax and enjoy "Sa Pichetada", sardinian typical picnic.
Your local guide will be keen to make the tour as personal as possible. He will assist you with his expertise and recall interesting anecdotes for you before bring you back to your cruise ship.
