The old town centre is one of the most ancient in Gallura, last repository of century old traditions, in singing and dancing, in weaving and hand crafted making of cork, iron and granite. Aggius is the only one place in his territory to hand down uses and traditions untouched: the choral singing “a tasgja” of ancient choruses, housed and defined by Gabriele D’Annunzio “old as dawn”.

The art of weaving on old tambours is kept alive: skilled hands create charming carpets and tapestries with natural colors, prepared with herbal and berries.

From Aggius is possible to reach easily the most beautiful Sardiania’s beaches and carry out a large number of activities offered by the territory, among which a visit to the natural thermal baths, archeological and naturalistic routes, tennis courts, trekking and horse-riding; the discovery of charming typical markets; participation to cultural events, typical of the Sardinian tradition.
