Bastion of Saint Remy
Holiday Travel Guide

Enjoy a drink and watch the city go by from the promenade atop one of Cagliari's most prominent landmarks.

The Bastion of Saint Remy is a classical style edifice with a grand staircase, triumphal arch and a spacious promenade on its roof. The monumental structure was built at the turn of the 20th century, and is now a serene space where you can unwind in front of a spectacular view of the city.

The bastion takes its name from the former Baron of Saint Remy, Filippo-Guglielmo Pallavicini. During World War II, this landmark site was severely damaged by bombs, but later restored to look like the original.

Walk to Constitution Square in the historic part of the city and take pictures of the imposing structure. Marvel at the Arc de Triomphe at the top of its wide staircase. The bastion is also an arresting sight in the evening, when it is bathed in lights placed along the stairs, beneath the arch and behind the Corinthian columns.

Walk up the steps to reach the promenade. If you don’t fancy the climb, take the elevator. Watch the sun go down over the city from this excellent vantage point. Spot other landmarks you have visited in the historic area.

Explore the promenade’s cultural space. The wide terrace often hosts art exhibitions and other activities. Previously, it was used as an infirmary for soldiers and a banquet hall. Sit with a drink at one of the bars and cafés and feel the warm Mediterranean breeze on your face. Come back later in the day when the area is particularly lively with many locals taking their early evening stroll.

The Bastion of Saint Remy is situated in the historic center of Cagliari, several blocks northeast of the coast. Take a bus to one of the many stops that are close to Castello district’s iconic landmark. The site is just a 10-minute walk east from the city’s main railway station.

The bastion’s promenade deck is open year-round from morning to evening, and is free of charge.
