Located north of Oristano, Cabras is one of the most important fishing villages, renowned for the production of the Sardinian specialty “bottarga”; pressed and salted mullet roe, served in slices on bread or grated over pastas together with olive oil and garlic. The fish swim back every year to the lagoon, the "stagno" of Cabras, to reproduce. Cabras and Santa Giusta, south of Oristano, are both known because of the crafted wicker boats, called "is fassonis". Many birds fly to Cabras each year because of the presence of both salt and fresh water, turning the area into a paradise for birdwatchers as well. The fresh water area, swamp included, stretches over 2000+ hectares.
