Su Pallosu is a town with only six residents and no shops or hotels. Yet it is a top tourist attraction on Sardinia thanks to its colony of cats.

Cats have been roaming the beach of Su Pallosu for over a century now. Fishermen introduced them onto Sardinia to keep the rat problem in check. Nowadays, the non-profit organization I Gatti di Su Pallosu cares for the colony while also arranging free guided tours. During these tours, visitors get to see the cats' feeding area as well as the turtle beach and the Gianni Atzori Mineral Collection. Of course, there's plenty of time to cuddle the cats which are all tame and friendly. Because of its success, it's advised to book at least one week in advance.

In 2016, TripAdvisor gave this feline attraction the Certificate of Excellence.
