On the coast of Montiferru, in the province of Oristano, there is a small village on the sea, known for a small beach and a natural bridge-shaped monument, shaped and rounded by the sea and the wind. He inspired directors and writers. Celebrated by the futurist poet G iovanni Corona and by the writer Flavio Soriga, s'Archittu of Santa Caterina di Pittinurri, in the territory of Cuglieri, takes its name from a long arch-shaped rock. About nine meters high, the calcareous pavement was the scene of the world of diving from great heights in 2001. The place, enchanting species at sunset, has inspired various directors: Lina Wertmuller, who set us the initial scene of Summer Night with Greek profile, almond eyes and basil smell (1986), D avide Manuli (L a legend of Kaspar Hauser, 2011) and Rocco Papaleo (A small southern company, 2012).
The cliff is formed by sedimentary limestone called lunar for the reflections they generate. Next to the natural arch, which was originally a cave, there is a sheltered beach with shallow waters that guarantees relaxation and fun. There is no lack of services and amenities and the possibility of disabled access. It can be reached by a road to the north of the village: with a walk along the paved path you reach almost the arch.
The most intrepid and expert swimmers are used to dive from the bow, while those who do not like the risk, can enjoy the sea and photograph the sunsets on summer days: the orange sun seems to stop imprisoned in the bow. The landscape ranges from the intense blue of the sea to the green of the Mediterranean scrub. The scenic effect is even more beautiful at night, when the lights illuminate the whole area.
S'Archittu is surrounded by three islets in the shape of a mushroom, also smoothed by the patience of the waves. While nearby is the archaeological site of Cornus, an ancient city dating back to the 6th century BC. C.
