  • Both weekdays/weekends you can visit the MEOC thanks to the availability of volunteers to whom I think should go our thanks. Is the largest Ethnographic Museum of Sardinia where are represented the history, traditions and popular culture of Gallura through a path that describes the ancient crafts of Cork and granite that led to the development economic development of the region. But not only are dedicated ample space to trades of blacksmith, Shoemaker, Carpenter and the techniques of weaving and dyeing of wool. I visited the Museum in December, then in low season; There was a soul, but the Museum was opened. Congratulations! Not always elsewhere is so.

  • The legend of Aggius. A popular tradition has it that at one time the devil had dwelling on these mounts. He occasionally gloried in face by granite boulders to watch with eyes blazing the underlying village. Nefarious in those days felt you blow a mighty wind which, although coming from the East, on his way from The snow covered his embarrassment the freezing cold. And while the inhabitants of Aggius body felt numb, the devil to turn suscitandovi hateful thoughts on their souls, blew, of vengeance, of blood. It was said that the Aggesi were originally peaceful and calm-natured and infernal spirit, wanting to damn their souls, had weight room in the Palace of granite, which was atop Mount; and you gloat about, in sleepless nights, to vex those poor things. The old trembled with fear in their bed, and recited the Rosary beneath the Coulter, while the furious wind screamed between the cracks of taxes. The son of hell, unable to sleep, he enjoyed to disturb the sleep of children of the Earth. Sometimes the devil. -What claim old-overlooked the cliff; and after annunziata its presence with a dull and prolonged roll, shouted three times to the village: "Aggius meu, Aggius meu; and giving will be ' tell whoever you zz ' add at pulta in Baptista? " The diabolical menace was the prediction of the destruction of the country; and the extended roll that preceded meant that a man was destined to die a violent death. So at least he said tradition. Imagine the dismay of the population! They resorted to the parish priest; called to consult the country's two intelligent people, but always in vain. The devil never was intended, and continued to torment them. In the mid-18th century, such a zealous missionary chanced to Aggius, was inspired to plant an iron cross on the mountain, to scare away the devil. Popular legend has it that on that night he slipped a wind so strong, that root's many oak trees and precipitated by mountains more than a mass of granite. All the houses trembled from the foundations, but the cross stood firm on the tip of the mountain. Upon hearing that infernal racket villagers ran to the Rector; which I send them home safely, telling them: "do not fear the devil is preparing bags to go to hell. Will no longer be to torment us. But it seems that the devil doesn't want to give up 2000 and more souls, whose had plighted perdition. Had but abandoned the monte Cross, but maybe to be hospitalized on Mount Fraile, or mount fin, where as in the past, continued to blow his hatred on the souls of the good aggesi; which, in turn, continued to dilaniarsi each other, spreading terror into the Gallura. Note: the punctuation is the original book. As you read the devil speaks in Limba. Story taken from: Il muto di Gallura by Enrico Costa. (Sassari 1841-1909) The mountains of Aggius: "mountains of gaining great wealth" (Mt. 782), "Sas" Mountains (Mt. 778), "Polcu" Mountains (Mt. 675), "la Cruzi Mountains" (mt. 667), "Fin" Mounts (680) and "Monti Fraili" (mt. 645).
