RELIGIOUS FEASTS IN SARDINIA
  

Impressive processions in costume,
brave horsemen defend a saint,
hooded men and mournful chants.


The devotion of the Sardinian people and ancient heathen traditions.
Traditional culture on display.

  • ARDIA
    Ardia is a ritual horse-race. It takes place every year in Sedilo, a town in the province of Oristano, the 6th and the 7th of July.
    Dozens of horsemen throw themselves in a crazy race in honour of Saint Costantino: devotion, dust, sun, fiery horses, competition... all this is Ardia.

  • THE FESTIVAL OF SANT'EFISIO
    Sardinia's most important religious event: hundreds of pilgrims gather in Cagliari from all over the Island to honour the Saint, wearing traditional costumes.
    Decorated carts, dozens of riders, songs, sounds, colours...

  • THE HOLY WEEK RITES
    Passion, death, life. In Sardinia, faith and tradition meet in the Mistery of the Resurrection of Christ. The Holy Week rites are evocative events that
    you can't miss.
