The origin of the name derives from a legend, according to which the devils, fascinated by the beauty of the Gulf of Cagliari tried to seize it. God sent his favored angels, led by the Archangel Michael, to banish Lucifer and his followers. The battle was fought in the skies of the Gulf and today still live two theories: the best known wants Lucifer, on the run, he was thrown from his horse and lost his seat that rested on the waters of the gulf, pietrificandosi, gave rise to the promontory . The other says that the demon, during the battle, fell on the promontory giving the current form. Hence the name Devil's Saddle and the Gulf of Angels. It is said that the angels sent by the Almighty still retain faith in their task and continue to protect the gulf.
