From 1st to 4 May 2017 experience the stunning festivity dedicated to Saint Efisio, one of the most important religious and folk events of whole Sardinia! Perpetuated for three and a half centuries this popular pilgrimage is to honor the vow made by the Administration of Cagliari in 1656 to thank the saint for having freed the city from a violent plague.
During the four days the saint is carried on foot and followed by the faithful for more than 60 km from the church of Stampace in Cagliari to the tiny church of Nora and back. The most exciting moments are the spectacular parade in Cagliari on 1st May showcasing the colorful folk costumes from all over Sardinia, the passage of the saint in Pula and his arrival in Nora.
