Is that the flag of Sardinia?
Yes, four severed Moors heads – it celebrates the Spanish Reconquest.
Looks like a place I would enjoy exploring!
It is a great place Gunta, I am certain that you would!

Might have to consider a cycling trip there. 🙂
It would be tough going in those mountains. It is a good place Sue, Sardinia not Italy so quite unique.
Those four severed heads could get you into a lot of trouble, depending on who you sent the card to.
I agree, you would probably need to give it a bit of thought. In Sardinia they are very proud of the flag and the symbolism!
all about italia
I’m not interested in Italy, but I’d like to visit Sardinia….especially if there are siestas and bars in the supermarkets.
Not interested in Italy is a fascinating statement that requires explanation?
Sardinia is great but it is not Italy!
Yes, but everyone goes to Italy, and then they write about it or take photos of it. I’ve seen so many posts about going to Italy that I’ve grown a bit tired of the place and I’ve never been there.
Okay…here’s an interesting challenge. Give me a link to a few of your posts about Italy that might change my mind.
That is a good challenge. I have ignored the obvious places, Venice, Florence, Rome, Siena etc. and I have chosen the town of Alberobello in Puglia in the south – https://apetcher.wordpress.com/2013/11/08/italy-and-puglia-the-trulli-houses-of-alberobello/
I’ve actually read this post before – I remember the outrageously expensive face cream and Kim giving tours of your trulli house.
I have to say….as intriguing as that is, I’m still not fully convinced, especially when you have to get up so early to avoid the ‘tourist hordes’. *shudder*
Honestly though, is Italy worth braving the tourist hordes?
I will have to say yes of course. Friendly people, good weather, excellent food and a fascinating history. A lot of it is busy with tourists because of these reasons but it is possible to find some off the beaten track places.
Now that’s what I like to hear! Thank you 🙂
