Cabras - Oristano (OR)

Cabras on the west coast of Sardinia has nearly 8.900 inhabitants and makes part of the Province of Oristano. It is located about 6 km northwest of Oristano and about 90 km northwest of Cagliari.

The famous beaches Is Arutas and Mare Ermi can be easily reached by car and are only a few kilometres away. The beach of Marina di Torre Grande is 4 km away.

Cabras is also famous for its religious barefoot run which takes place in September during the celebration of San Salvatore. In this celebration barefoot people go in procession carryng the Saint from Cabras to San Salvatore in order to propitiate both the crops and rich fishing in the nearby pond.

PLACES TO GO

 

A few kilometres from Oristano the coastline varies considerably: in some places it's rocky and in other sandy. The sandy peninsula of Sinis is really interesting. It is an area characterised by ponds populated by very rare birds, and by rich fishing fauna which is highly protected.

All this natural wealth is enriched by a priceless archaeological treasure. In the peninsula of Sinis in fact, we find the ruins of Tharros, the ancient Phoenician town, which later came under Punic domination and later still under the Romans.
