The party in honor of Sant’Efisio, a tradition that goes on since 362 years.
Every year, on May 1st, the celebration of Sant’Efisio takes place to fulfill a religious vow that the Municipality of Cagliari made in 1652 to free the city from a terrible plague. Sant’Efisio is a colorful celebration of faith, devotion and cult of traditions.
Devoted worshippers accompany the statue of the Martyr Saint from Cagliari, through Capoterra, Sarroch, Villa San Pietro, and Pula to the town of Nora.
Other notable places of worship include the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary at Domus De Maria, dedicated to the Madonna del Rosario, the Parish Church of the Carmine at Teulada. Of particular historical and architectural significance is the Romanesque church of S.Pietro of XIII at Villa San Pietro, which dominates the beautiful Town Hall Square.
