Sunday dedicated to relaxing, tradition and fun. On September 7th Sardinia Magic Travel organizes a day in the Sinis Peninsula for the Corsa degli scalzi. The programme includes a morning visit of the majestic archaeological site in Tharros which was one of the most important and impressive Phoenician-Punic and Roman towns of the Mediterranean, overlooking the whole Sinis Peninsula. At the end of the tour we will stop in a farmhouse nearby for lunch, and we will continue our tour to S’archittu the unique rock of the area. The day will continue in San Salvatore to watch the spectacular colonne-tharros
“Corsa degli Scalzi” that has been performed, according to the tradition, since the end of 1500, with an army of 800 barefoot men carrying the statue of Martyr San Salvatore, from Cabras to the small village that still retains his name. Hundreds of young people, wearing a white cloak and barefoot, run while carrying the statue to the village for the celebration of the function, and where it remains until Sunday, when among the crowd it is brought back to Cabras, while still running and raising so much dust. According to the tradition the aim was to intimidate the Saracens by making them believe that the “Scalzi” were a huge army capable of fighting against them. We will start our way back from Cabras at around 8:00 PM to be in Olbia about two hours later.
