Escala del Cabirol
A reportage of a well-known touristic and historical route in Sardinia.
The stone sinuous path has been constructed in 1959 on the tracks of a historical way, enlarging and regularization it with excavation and controlled demolition along all the cliff.
It consists of 656 stairs that, over a drop of over 100 meters, connects the surface of the spur of Capo Caccia to the Neptune Caves of Alghero.
The desire to re-establish the thread of memory in the postwar-time with the Catalan history of the Sardinian town is reiterated thru the evocation of the old Catalan in the name (Cabirol means deer) and a commemorative plaque affixed to the top.
The work (of a public nature) and the historical thinking at the base are historically attributed to the architect and Sardinian politician Antoni Simon Mossa.
