Sa Carrela 'e nanti
The Carnival festival in Santu Lussurgiu in called Sa Carrela 'e nanti (the road ahead), which is probably the most spectacular horse race in Sardinia. The horsemen are divided into groups of two and three and race through a street in the town, full of bends, bottlenecks and downhill stretches.The numerous spectators line the route, crowded along the narrow roads or on balconies and in windows. They catch their breath as the horsemen race by holding on to each other’s arms for support along the route as they try to maintain their balance.
