Cagliari 22/12/2012: Poetto Beach / Spiaggia del Poetto

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Poetto (Poettu in Sardinian) is the main beach of Cagliari which stretches for about eight kilometers, from Sella del Diavolo up the coast of St. Helens. The name of the beach is thought to derive from an Aragonese tower called "the Poet," which can still be seen today on the Sella del Diavolo (Devil's Saddle). Another theory is that it derives from the Catalan pohuet (Little well), in reference to the numerous wells and cisterns for storing rainwater scattered on the Sella del Diavolo (Devil's Saddle). Also, probably, the term may derive from the Spanish “puerto” indicating the harbor of Marina Piccola near the Devil's Saddle.


Il Poetto (Poettu in sardo) è la principale spiaggia di Cagliari che si estende per circa otto chilometri, dalla Sella del Diavolo sino al litorale di Quartu Sant'Elena. Il nome della spiaggia si pensa derivi da una torre aragonese denominata "del Poeta", che si può osservare ancora oggi sopra la Sella del Diavolo. Un'altra ipotesi è che derivi dal catalano pohuet (pozzetto), in riferimento ai numerosi pozzi e cisterne per la conservazione dell'acqua piovana sparsi sulla Sella del Diavolo. Inoltre, verosimilmente, il termine potrebbe derivare dallo spagnolo puerto ad indicare l'approdo di Marina Piccola a ridosso della Sella del Diavolo.
