Events in sardegna in August: the SAGRA of the little pig is held in Palmadula. It is a village in the Nurra,
halfway between ALGHERO and Stintino, but in the territory of SASSARI.
The resort is enchanting because we are very close to the Argentiera and its abandoned mine. Tasting in the square and evening of music and dance.
