Festivity of San Bartolomeo

“Santu Portolu” - From the first Monday in September for nine days.

Festa Santu PortoluIt is a traditional festival that begins with the novena (cycle of nine days of Masses in honor of the Saint), the first Monday of September in the rural church, situated about two kilometers away from the village. During the novena, that is held in the afternoon, faithfuls called "Andantiles" reach the Sanctuary walking along the distance that separates the Church from the village.

Until a few years ago, official organizers, called "Sos Operaios", along with helpers, called "Sos Nuinantes" used to live in the small houses on the site, " sos muristenes”, for the whole duration of the celebrations.

The festival is usually organized because a vow of faith to the Saint, by four or five "Operaios", and takes place in the first fifteen days of September. The most popular events are on Saturdays, Sundays and Tuesdays that fall during the novena, characterized by the presence of large audience that participates to the Mass which follows "Su Rosariu", the Rosary in Sardinian language, of ancient tradition.

Later the procession will take place around the small Sanctuary, providing with "Gosos de Santu Portolu", typical sung prayers accompanied by accordions.
