Currently the road is closed just after the rock, so you arrive and have to U-turn. Thermocouple is just on the left side, and it is impressive. Also the valley downstairs is a good view, moon- kind. Definitely worth the short detour.

This rock is a must see! And you can take really nice photos there. Only parking is a little bit difficult because you must leave the car on the road...no parking

It’s a big stone. Looks like an elephant. That’s it. :) If you are in the area then it’s a nice short stop for a photo. But don’t drive more then 50km for it.

It's a beautiful elephant shaped rock just standing there by the side of the road. If you are passing by the north region it's right outside Castelsardo. You have free parking and it's a free natural attraction with easy access.

That looks like an elephant. Nothing more. If you're near Castelsardo just make a quick stop, take a picture and enjoy the beautiful view.

A special rock just off the road that reminds you of the elephant. Beautiful view of the valley, otherwise, be careful when parking, because there are no special parking lots!

If you are on the way to Castelsardo don`t miss this wonderful piece of rock. Is big and really looks like an elefant.
