The Easter Week in Dorgali

Dorgali and Cala Gonone

This week is the ideal period for people who wants to enjoy the spring colors and scents in Cala Gonone and Dorgali. Walks and inland excursions, traditions and rites of Sardinian people will make your holiday unforgettable.

During the Palm Sunday, the traditional liturgy foresees a procession on all the streets surrounding the old district of Sa Serra, around the parish church. The Holy Week's rites proceed on wednesday with the Via Crucis torchlight along the streets; on friday evening (around 8 p.m.) starts the paraliturgical ceremony of "s' iscravamentu" (the release of Christ from the cross), with a recital in traditional language and dresses about the Passion of the Christ. At the end of ceremony, the faithful accompany the dead Christ and Our Lady of Sorrows to the grave of the small church of Santa Lucia, among prayer, traditional songs and the yearning sound of “sas metraculas” and “sas reulas”, shaked by children as sign of mourning.

Easter Sunday is the day of "S'Incontru": the statues of the Risen Christ and the Mother depart at different times from the parish church and they meet themselves in Corso Umberto; follow the procession to the church and the mass.

Saturday night take place "Su Mudonzu": the boys "steal” dozen of vases from the balconies of the houses and they bring them to the parish churchyard, to adorn it and to emphasize the happiness of Easter. Formerly were carried also sweets, looms with woven and traditional wooden carts, placed as triumphal arches; the day after their owners went to retrieve objects offering sweets and wine as wish at the end of the Easter Mass.
This was also an opportunity to make public ("bocare a craru" in sardinian language) the engagements of the young couples to citizenry.
In the neighboring countries, like Oliena and Orgosolo, there are others evocative ceremonies that are worth seeing.

    The Cala Gonone weather, mitigated by the seaproximity, is characterized by mild winters and warm dry summers.

    As a result, also because of the shape of the area, it lends itself to various activities related to the sport, the main attraction that captures thousands of tourists each year, followed by crafts and local cuisine.

    The characteristic wind of the area is the Mistral, which is manifested by irregular and variable winds gusts, conditioned by the gorges of the mountains in which is channeled and then reflected from the south-east.
