Folk festivals and “sagre”
Several folk festivals are organized throughout Sardinia. It is the rediscovery of ancient savours and traditions of this ancient land, its perfumes and its customs. Among the most popular festivals there are the Cortes Apertas (open courts), during which the towns open the doors of their cellars, their homes to let visitors know their way of life, their art of making bread and cakes, of working iron, terracotta and wood.
