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.
