Full description
Your first stop will be at the little town of Villacidro, where you'll visit the ancient washhouse, the building, built in 1893 on a design by engineer Enrico Pani.  It has a series of masonry tanks  from the Florentine foundry of Pignone, connected by a water supply pipe and characterized by an inclined plane to facilitate washing clothes. The cover closes a C-shaped plan with pavilions adorned with fake metallic openings. 

Afterwards, you will drive towards the waterfalls, through a lush, scented forest, embedded in one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Sardinia.  Sa Spendula, is the name of the locality in which it is situated, meaning 'the cascade', and  is the sudden drop of  Rio Coxinas,  originating at  Santu Miali (in the picturesque park of  Monte Linas), with three consecutive falls with a maximum 60-meter high altitude gap. The waters form three natural pools known as  Campanas de Sisinni Conti.
In autumn and winter you will be enchanted by its vigor, while during the summer you will be impressed by the evocative light in the evening, and the inebriating cool that you will experience amidst the oleanders and holm oak woods. 
After the hike relax and enjoy "Sa Pichetada",  a typical Sardinian picnic.
