The spirit of Ichnusa

La processione degli scalzi (the procession of barefooted), Cabras

La corsa degli scalzi, the run of the barefooted, Cabras

Also this trip came to the end. We were not barefooted, like the 1,000 runners of Cabras (click on the picture to zoom in), whose yearly procession revives the rescue of Saint John’s statue from the Turkish Ottomans, who invaded the place in 1619. After hundreds of kms along the West Coast of Sardegna up to the North shores of Stintino. Across dozens of beaches, historical towns and old ruins. A trip pointed with delightful stopovers in the regions of Oristano and Alghero, explored in September 2017 by Lorenzo Borghi and Maria Francesca.

Prominent

Man made structures stick out of the panorama. It seems they could stand time for thousand years more. Like the two columns of  the Phoenician ruins of Tharros … if only archeologist did not build them in the XXth century to obtain grants at support of  the archeological site…
