The flavours you will enjoy during your holiday in the Tavolara Archipelago could be shared with your friends returning home. What nicer than ending a holiday feeling like you are still there, where you had a happy experience?
Shops and market in Porto San Paolo offers few suggestions for you such as sheep’s milk cheese, fresh or mature, spicy or garlic sausage with pepper and salt, simple or rosemary bread guttiau, asphodel or strawberry tree honey. But also mullet or tuna bottarga (dried fish eggs), sweets like seadas or malloreddus and ravioli pasta.
Sardinian jewellery with coral, black opal and the ‘eyes of Saint Lucia’ are good likes in our ancient culture. What you cannot miss is the Sardinian faith, a filigree ring made in different shapes in gold or silver.
The Porto San Paolo market
The Porto San Paolo market enlivens the village and attracts residents and tourists from all the neighbouring towns. It is held every week on Thursday mornings, and from June to September it becomes weekly , on Sunday.
