Regions in Sardinia



Saccargia

Churches

Sardinia is not just a beautiful island in the Mediterranean, spoiled by the sun and bathed by the sea. Sardinia, the island of the Nuraghi, is also a land of arts, rich in impressive examples of painting, sculpture and architecture.

We would like to present two of the most significant examples of the sacral art of the Middle Ages to you: on one hand, one of the altars of San Filippo Neri in the Castelsardo Cathedral near Sassari, bedecked with unique carved woodwork; on another the incomparable façade of the Romanesque church of Saccargia, a jewel of European architecture amidst the fruitful plain of Codrongianus in northern Sardinia. Historical sources date the church from the year 1114. The alternating arrangement of black and white stones follows the model of Tuscan architecture from the region of Pisa, Lucca and Pistoia. The interior walls of the apse were decorated with frescoes during the 13th century, the same time that the portico was executed - absolutely original, without any Tuscan precedent.

Sardinia is exceedingly rich in art treasures of sacral origin, and wherever your journey leads you, you will have the chance to complement your beach holiday with an unforgettable art programme. Sardinia''s shrines await you.

Letter from Sardinia 2013: Cortes apertas

Cortes apertas

Sardinia, our "Paradisola", is a gem of hospitality in the Mediterranean. Anyone who has ever been there knows what we are taking about: for the Sards hospitality is not a program, but rather a shared life. Hospitality has its roots in enjoyment of life, simplicity and humility. This trait can be appreciated especially in the context of "Cortes apertas," an authentic Sardinian tradition, which we discuss in more detail in our traditional "Letter from Sardinia."

The magic threads of Maria Lai

This year we send our letter from Sardinia with the paintings and words of Maria Lai, the most important living artist on Sardinia, who is now more than 90 years old. She says to you, 'I am happy if I am able to give you, at this moment of global insecurity, the feeling of holding the sun in your hand, – “tenendo per mano il sole” – and to feel the longing for the skies, since it is the sun and the skies that give us first knowledge and then growth for happier living.'
