At the very north of Sardinia near Port Cervo at Capo d’Orso, is a huge rock shaped like a bear.
I have to admit that I did not take this photo….well I did, but it is a photo of a photo on a display board at the entrance to the walk to the bear. The see the bear in all its glory you need to be some distance from it, preferably out to sea, where we were not.
It is a huge block of granite, eroded by the wind over centuries. Ptolemy mentioned it in his writings.
There is a path which takes to to the top of the rocky hill where the bear stands. We paid our €2 entry fee and off we went. The rock formations are incredible.
The winding path led us to the bear’s bottom.
We could walk between his legs.
For a great view across to Palau.
The rocks that make up the bear were amazing up close.
Sardinia is a rock lovers’ paradise.
