Holy Week

Holy Week in Sardinia is a unique and exciting experience. Century-old traditions of Spanish origin merge with ancient local mystical-religious customs (Campidanesi, Logudoresi and Barbarians) to create rites, processions and choral moments of great expressive power and suggestion. Above all, the processions of the Mysteries, the touching rites of the deposition from the cross (“Su Scravamentu”) and the encounter between the statue of Jesus and the Madonna (“S'Incontru”) through the streets of the villages stand out. A particularly important role is played by the Brotherhoods, who take care of the sacred performances and parade in their suggestive costumes, singing religious songs in Latin and Sardinian, whose origins also date back to the Middle Ages.
