Galtellì The Essential
The charming Galtellì is among the best-preserved medieval market towns on the island. The Romanesque San Pietro cathedral boasts beautiful Byzantine-style frescoes. The Catalan Gothic-style crucifix (early 14C) housed within the parish church is reputed to work miracles and attracts great numbers of believers, as do the ceremonies held in Holy Week. For a better understanding of the traditions and economy of the market town, drop into the pleasant Museo Etnografico Sa Domo de Marras.
