Villanova district

The Villanova district, at east from Castello, was once inhabited by farmers, who worked on the vast fields and vineyards that surrounded the area. Even today the houses in the neighbourhood are generally humbler and with a lower development in height compared to the buildings of the other historic districts. During the Holy Week the streets of the district come alive with Cagliari and tourists who attend the various processions, organized by the archconfraternities of Solitude and the Most Holy Crucifix, which have their oratories in Villanova. From the expansion of Villanova, the modern districts of the east of Cagliari were formed.
