The Bear Rock and Fortifications
The promontory of Capo d’Orso is named after the great rock sculpted by the wind recalling the shape of a bear located on the tip of the promontory. From here you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view on the archipelago of La Maddalena. In the north of Sardinia, in particular the portion of coast facing the Archipelago of La Maddalena, there are various military fortifications dating back to the end of the nineteenth century, built as outposts to provide protection by the French. Heading toward Palau and Porto Rafael from the Bear Rock, you will reach the Mount Altura battery, still well preserved.
