Right behind the Spiagga di Nora you will find the histroic church Sant'Efisio. Each year early in May, the biggest procession of Sardinia, the "Sagra di Sant'Efisio" ends here. The march begins in the town center of Cagliari, and they celebrate the former Centurio Efisio who was sent from Rome (in 303 AD) to extinguish Christianity in Sardinia. But as soon as Efisio arrived in Sardinia, he converted to the Christian belief. He got caught by the Roman soldiers and executed here, in Nora.
