Festival of Sant'Efisio
The Sagra di Sant'Efisio is the most important festival in Sardinia and takes place in Cagliari every 1st of May since 1657, in fulfilment of an ancient vow (a procession in honour of the saint) made to St. Efisio by the municipality for the city’s deliverance from the plague outbreak of 1656.
The use of ceramics has a long tradition that goes back to the Nuragic era and continues to this day with the work of skilled ceramic artisans who produce functional pieces like pots, plates, cups, jugs, amphorae, vessels and decorative items of various kinds.
Traditional Sardinian cuisine is quite simple yet flavourful and is based on fresh seasonal ingredients, locally sourced meats and seafood.
