Sant'Efisio, la festa della Sardegna




Every year – since 1652 – a colorful procession of carriages, knights and faithful accompanies the statue of Sant Efisio from Cagliari to Nora, the final stage of the procession. A journey of over 80 km on foot that unites faithful from all over Sardinia. The celebrations from 1st to 4 May 2018.

The whole procession prepares the passage of the chariot of St Efisio: before him parades the faithful in traditional dress, the traccas, the religious brotherhoods, the militia on horseback with the old uniforms by the red jacket. Horses and riders prepare to parade, oxen are dressed for the parade with horns adorned with colorful flower cones.
