In the heart of the Gallura is a characteristic village that will strike you for the great care they take of their granite houses, considered among the most beautiful in all the region. One of the main activities of those who live in Aggius is the extraction and processing of granite, but the town is also known for its beautiful carpets and, more generally speaking, for its fine textiles. The Touring Club Italiano has awarded the town with a Bandiera Arancione (Orange Flag) in recognition of the characteristics of the historical centre, the beauty of its setting and the efficiency of its services for visitors.
Among the attractions is the town’s choir, famous for its remarkable sound and nicknamed “Choir of the Galluran Roosters” by the famous poet Gabriele D’Annunzio. Another highlight is the atmosphere created during Holy Week, when the small town becomes something of a Jerusalem and the streets fill with the faithful as members of the local lay brotherhoods clad in traditional garments walk in solemn procession.
