Sardinia, a unique experience
Sassari

Sassari

This dynamic city is the second largest in Sardinia. If you want to visit Sassari, we recommend parking near the train station. From here the historic city centre with its numerous churches and squares is within easy walking distance. The Gothic S. Nicola cathedral and its beautiful baroque façade, the 13th century S. Maria di Bethlehem, the 13th century San Pietro di Silki and the various Liberty style palazzos, such as the Palazzo Ducale and the Palazzo Giordano, are definitely worth a visit. Don’t forget to visit the Fontana dello Rosello!
Sassari is known for its 2 annual events; Cavalcata Sarda and the Candalieri, the “chandelier procession”. The first takes place on Ascension Day, usually the penultimate Sunday of May, featuring a horseback parade and a display of the embroidered and decorated traditional Sardinian costumes. The second, on the afternoon of August 14, involves the bearing around of enormous wooden “candlesticks” through the old town.
