Built on a crag, 271m above the sea, in the Western part of Capo Caccia there is la Torre della Pegna, named after the area, called like that during the Spanish domination.
In Spanish, in fact, peña means cliff. Built in 1572, it was a strategic observation point, and a part of the defense system against the enemies.
It is located in the state-owned forest, and is accessible after crossing a spectacular path, surrounded by one of the most breathtaking landscapes in Sardinia.
