  • Little church in the center of the neighborhood of Stampace, focus of devotion to the Sardinian patron par excellence, has a couple of altars, starting from that major. The statue of Saint Efisio emerges sumptuous and luminous at the center of the Church and the prayers of each devotee, especially the 1 may, the day of the feast. Symbolic place to see!

  • The Church which is located in the District of Stampace is a small church in Baroque style. Its importance is due to the fact that preserves a statue of Saint Efisio, martyr revered by Cagliari. From 1 to 4 May every year out of this church is the spotlight from all around the world because the 1 St of may we celebrate the feast of Sant'Efisio parade carrying the statue of the Saint to the Church in Nora where he was beheaded, and the May 4 return of the Saint in his Church of Stampace.

The wooden binnacle (1888) containing the relics of the Saint is the work of master carver Efisio Atzeni.

  • 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.
