  • In the heart of the old town and the old town, at the end of a narrow hiding secrets. The stampacini (local residents), they watch jealously on the Church. If you happen to be able to join the Party on 1 may I assure you that would be a great surprise to colors, clothes and tradition which blend ... and then the crowd the choral songs, the bells of the oxen, the hooves of horses and the twinkling of antici traditional jewellery. For very worshipful as me and who can become a real fan.

  • On tour to open sights I visited this little church very dear to the people of Cagliari. Small but very nice thanks to the presence of the paintings and statues of the Saint, also recommended to visit the crypt where he was imprisoned Sant'Efisio

  • It is a place of devotion for Cagliari. In fact the Church from the artistic and architectural point of view is not particularly merits. It is very simple and with a single nave with side chapels has a large marble altar. The square in front of where the typical houses of the villanova quarter. While it is very significant for the religious value and devotion to the Saint Efisio, patron of the city. Suggestive especially during the Festival of May Day 1 begins the pilgrimage to Nora, the site of the martyrdom of the Saint. And don't miss the return of the Saint in the late evening of May 4 in a mystical atmosphere.

The wooden binnacle (1888) containing the relics of the Saint is the work of master carver Efisio Atzeni. The side walls are home to two paintings in 1953 of the painter Giovanni Battista Scano depicting the martyrdom and glory of Sant'Efisio. The plume of the dome above the altar are four circular paintings of the second half of the 20th. Century attributed to the master Baciccia Scano representing the four saints: St. Eusebius, Saint fulgentius, Saturn and Sant'Efisio

  • This little gem tucked in stampace stands on what history has shown how the military prison first then Diocletian efisio, who converted and martyred in beach of nora, where stands the little church dedicated to him, on 15 January 303 a.d. The small church is just the starting point of the procession every 1 in may from almost 400 years see citizenship Cagliari dissolve the vow made to the Saint. From here towards nora and then return the 4 night. The Church, rich in votive preserves three statues of the Saint. One is ever present in the side chapel, and is the one that comes out on May 1. Another is present in the sacristy, the oldest, called sant efisiu sballiau (wrong) because he has in his right hand the Palm of martyrdom and symbol in the sin on the cross symbol. Finally ve n is a third of lonis, who is brought to the Cathedral in other occurrences. Note the frescoes and the reliquary of the Saint in the middle of the hagiographic altar. Beneath the Church, with entrance on via sant ' efisio, is brought to the jail, where you can note the column that was kept tied the Holy because being tortured. It was probably a place of early Christian worship but also are charged.
