Photographer's Note

The symbol of the beach of the Poetto The Saddleback of the Devil is the cape that rises to south of Cagliari and separates the beach of the Poetto from that of Calamosca.

On the beach are visible algae that have invaded the beach after heavy storms south-west

The legend tells that the devils, charmed from the fascination and the beauty of the Gulf of Cagliari tried to get it. God sent its angels in, guided from Michele archangel, in order to drive away Lucifero and its adepts. The battle was fought in skies of the gulf and today still two theories live: the most known tells that Lucifero fell on the cape giving it the actual form; other tells that the demon, in escape, falls from horse and lost its saddleback that was put down on waters of the gulf and petrifying itself gave origin to the cape. From here the name Saddleback of the Devil and that of the gulf "Gulf of the Angels". One says that the angels sent by the Omnipotent still maintains faith to their task and continues protect the gulf.(from Wikipedia)
