We drove two hundred and thirty curvaceous kilometers to the tiny town of Las Plassas for their annual bean festival. We climbed the adjacent mountain for a bird’s eye view of this spectacular town, which has a population of around two hundred and twenty-three gracious and humble citizens.
Later, we walked the cobblestone streets and sampled the regional fare. We drank, shopped local: EVOO, wine, jewelry, honey and of course beans. We learned about ancient traditions and song and we laughed alongside locals as they recounted stories from yesteryears.
I’m looking forward to getting back to this area of the island. The views, the valleys, the wonderful people, and the surrounding mountains make this tiny town worth the drive. This was one of the best little discoveries I’ve found on the island.
Have you been?
Thank you for sharing this lovely little town. That is something we so loved about Sardegna, finding little small towns that were amazing, with such friendly people. Always interesting and with great food too! Have a beautiful weekend, love that you are back!!!!! May God Bless. Looking forward to your next adventure!
Love & Hugs,
Your Sard/American Friend,
