SARTIGLIA 2019

The snorting of steeds and stomping of hooves, the clanging of harnesses and roll of drums, the excited chatter of the audience: it’s a show rife with unforgettable emotions. Sa Sartiglia is an equestrian joust whose roots are set deep in ancient pagan rites of fertility and prosperity.

The emblem of the city goes on stage during the Carnival days. Taking part of this crowded festival is absolutely worthy, as you can witness the amazing skills and the beauty of the horse-riders and the amazons performing in the “Corsa alla stella” and in the acrobatic ride of the Pariglie.

Two different guilds of horse riders compete in this challenge to gain more stars and points. Overall, hundreds of people are involved: actors wearing traditional clothes in the historical re-enactment parade, drummers, trumpets, amazons, horse-riders, and of course… cheering audience. And then music, dances and good food.

A timeless ritual that can grant you to live always great emotions.
