The Capo Caccia Vertical Cliffs are a group of imposing cliffs that may be seen on the Italian island of Sardinia. Rock climbing and base jumping are common activities on these cliffs, which can be found on the island's northeastern shore, close to the town of Alghero.
The cliffs rise to a height of more than 183 meters (nearly 600 feet), providing breathtaking perspectives of the Mediterranean Sea.
The cliffs make for an ideal takeoff and landing location in the sport of paragliding due to its panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the natural environment.
At the end of May each year, a religious ritual is held at the base of the cliffs. During this ceremony, a statue of the Virgin Mary is blessed, and then it is taken out to sea to be fished.
The lighthouse of Capo Caccia is perched at the top of the cliffs, providing breathtaking views of the coastline and the water below.
Visitors are required to pay to ascend to the peak.
It is a complex of Domus de Janas that dates back to the Bronze Age and is located a short distance from the cliffs. This pre-Nuragic necropolis dates back to prehistoric times.
