Cagliari, Sardinia’s main city, is situated in the middle of the Gulf of the Angels (Golfo degli Angeli). Spread out over seven hills (Sant’Elia, Bonaria, Monte Urpinu, Castello, Monte Claro, Tuvixeddu andSan Michele), Cagliari has Phoenician-Punic origins and today still conserves important Roman ruins such as the Amphitheatre, the Viper’s cave and Tigellio’s villa. During the first centuries of the last millennium, the town suffered the Spanish and Pisan dominations. Evidence of their influence can be found in the two Pisan towers built in the 1300′s together with the massive city walls that mark and watch over the oldest part of the town Castello. In the Castello neighbourhood, you’ll find the Cathedral, built in the same period as the towers (in 1254).

Thanks to its port, over time Cagliari has been Sardinia’s entry, and therefore meeting point, of different cultures.

Cagliari is a town of many traditions. Still today there are numerous popular historical events. Among the most important is the S. Efisio festival. For the last 400 years, it has gathered thousands of believers in a procession behind this Saint and town’s protector. Another important event is “Sa Die de sa Sardigna” (Sardinia Day) that recalls the people’s insurrection ending with the expulsion of the Piedmonts from the island the 28th of April, 1794.

Today, Cagliari is an important point for sporting events such as the Women’s beach volleyball World Championship. It takes place on the Poetto Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia and preferred destination for summer holidays for tourists and Cagliaritani alike.
