On the first four days of May every year, a celebration in honour of Sant’Efisio takes place in Cagliari. This religious festival draws together the faithful, traditional costumes and colours from all over Sardinia to pay tribute and give thanks to the Saint for saving the town from a violent plague epidemic in 1656.
It is a very long pilgrimage with many participants gathering together from all over the island and proceeding along on foot and on horseback. You will see some people on “Traccas”, carts pulled by oxen and decorated with flowers and fruit.
