Sa Spendula and its waterfalls

Immerse yourself in a natural environment of great beauty, nestled between granite rocks and lush vegetation of cysts and mastic

Sa Spendula, which literally means "waterfall" in sardinia language, is a fantastic leap into the Coxinas River, before arriving on the Campidano plain, which rises on the plateau of the same name, about 700 meters above sea level.

Along its path it descends through a long and narrow gorge between Mount Margiani and Mount Omo and falls with 3 jumps, the last of about 30 meters, forming the waterfall.

It is situated in a natural environment of great beauty, set between granite rocks and lush vegetation of cysts and mastic trees.

 The rainy season is certainly the most suitable for a visit, but if the winter was full of rain, there is no shortage of water, even during the summer Sa Spendula can give you great sensations.

Spendula is also included in literary history thanks to the writer Gabriele D'Annunzio, who during a stay in Villacidro in 1882, dedicated a sonnet to it in the famous book Capitan Fracassa.

It is the most famous and practiced canyoning route by enthusiasts, but also by the curious who, seeing the easy access to the path that overlooks the last waterfall, can admire those who fall in love with ropes and cable cars.

We will walk along a small path of 15 minutes that will take you directly to the Canyon, where the uninterrupted flow of water has dug and shaped the rock over the years, creating a path full of waterfalls of various heights that ended in natural pools, surrounded by a splendid granite amphitheater.
