Dates for Your Diary

Wine festival

Held in the first weekend in August in Jerzu in the heart of Ogliastra. Taste typical products and the famous Jerzu Cannonau wine, strong and scented.

Bonfire of Sant'Antonio 17 January

Held in Norbello, an oak tree is chosen and a group of 18 year olds haul it into the town while the local girls look on feeding them with sweets or pastries. The tree is set alight in front of the Church of San Giovanni.

Caccia alla Giovenca

Held mid August in Guasila a heifer is set free and young horsemen attempt to lasso it while the older men of the town do everything they can to stop it happening. The one who grabs the animal by its horns wins a red handkerchief representing a future marriage.
