Trekking to Sa Strada de su Vagoni and the Caves of San Giovanni from Domusnovas is a unique and thrilling experience for those who love adventure and nature. Sa Strada de su Vagoni is an old railway track that was built in the early 20th century to transport minerals from the mines of Iglesias to the port of Palmas. The railway track was abandoned in the 1960s and now serves as a hiking trail.

The trekking trail starts from the town of Domusnovas, which is located in the heart of the Sulcis region. The first part of the trail is relatively easy, and you will walk along the old railway track. The trail then becomes steeper and more challenging. After about an hour of trekking, you will reach the entrance of the Caves of San Giovanni. These caves are among the most spectacular in Sardinia, and they offer a unique and unforgettable experience. The caves are a natural wonder, with stalactites and stalagmites of incredible shapes and colors. The tour of the caves is guided, and you will have the opportunity to explore the various rooms and passages of the cave system. The guide will explain the geology and history of the caves, making the experience both educational and exciting.

Overall, trekking to Sa Strada de su Vagoni and the Caves of San Giovanni from Domusnovas is a fantastic experience that combines adventure, nature, and culture. It is an excellent opportunity to discover the beauty of the Sulcis region and to immerse yourself in the natural wonders of Sardinia. A modest, seasonal aperitif including traditional Sardinian fares like sausage, cheese, and wine will round off the evening.
