It’s easy to find this 15 meter waterfall in the municipality of Martis, Sardinia, Italy. Lucky for us there were plenty of signs posted along the side of the roads indicating: Cascata Triulintas. After driving down a long, dirt road you will come to a dead-end and it’s from here you must walk the 10 minutes it takes to reach the waterfall. There are no signs indicating a parking lot. We just pulled up, parked and walked. We also happened to be the only people visiting the waterfall – it was splendid and great for snapping photos. It’s too bad that my camera’s battery died the moment we arrived at Cascata Triulintas as I only grabbed one photo, the rest are my friends’ shots.
It’s an easy hike to the waterfall, just follow the dirt path. Once inside the bush there are no signs pointing in the right direction. It’s almost impossible to get lost in here, the path has been well tread and a wooden fence lines the way. You will even find picnic tables at just the entrance to the waterfalls, slightly hidden under old oak trees, a nice shaded place to rest and take in your beautiful natural surroundings.
Cascata Triulintas was once a thriving grain mill until floods ravaged the area. Beside the waterfall are the remains of the ancient water driven mill. The best time to visit this waterfall is from December to April when the currents are running their fullest.
This is just one of the many special, hidden wonders that Sardinia can offer.
