“Molentargius-Salt Works Regional Natural Park, spread on an area of about 1600 hectares, is located between the two towns of Cagliari and Quartu Sant'Elena, facing Poetto seafront. It was established in 1999 to safeguard and enhance a site of international relevance, that had already been included in Ramsar Convention in 1977, due to its importance as a place of stop, wintering and nesting of several species of aquatic birds, as pink flamingos, nowadays a symbol of the town. The history of the park is strictly connected to the one of the Salt Works: as a matter of fact, it owes its name to is molentargius, people who used to lead the donkey (su molenti, in Sardinian language) carrying the salt collected from the basins. Actually, over the centuries the area has been the richest source in Sardinia for the extraction of salt from the sea, an activity stopped only in 1985. For these reasons, visiting Molentargius Regional Park represents a unique experience that combines the pleasure of historical knowledge, for example through the Salt itineraries, which offer interesting architectural, historical, environmental, scientific and technical cues, still not known by the most, to a full immersion in an extraordinarily lively and wild landscape. Several species of wild birds cohexist in Molentargius ponds, representing the most relevant and remarkable charachteristic of the park.
