Sa Sartiglia

You need to experience Carnival in Sardinia at least once in your lifetime. One of the most spectacular is Sa Sartiglia, the equestrian tournament of medieval origin held each year at Oristano on the last Sunday before Lent and on Shrove Tuesday. The rite opens Su Componidori, the head of the manifestation. Follow masked knights at full gallop, trying to catch the star. After competiton, le Pariglie are run: the acrobatic show of the horsemen at full gallop.
