S’Ardia

TRADITION, HISTORY, LEGEND

The Ardia is a wild ride on horseback made in honor of San Costantino, which takes place every year in Sedilo on the evening of 6 July and is repeated on the morning of 7 and recalls the battle of Ponte Milvio between Constantine and Maxentius.

It’s led by a leader, “sa prima pandela”, followed by two other knights, sa secunda and sa third, and by three escorts representing Constantine and his army. Approximately 100 knights participate each year who, instead, represent the pagans led by Maxentius.
