Mandra Edera is to be found in the heart of Sardinia, in the Abbasanta area, a meeting point between Montiferru, Marghine and Barigadu, where Mandra means fence, a fence that still encloses fragrances and ancient flavours.
We like to imagine Mandra Edera as a refined piece of cloth, in which the threads that have been woven are the history and traditions of the area that are still alive today. We find them embroidered in a tapestry where, with the help of wooden looms, they become the men and the horses, the sun and sky of this land.
Mandra Edera is a land scorched by the sun. It lies amongst rocks, water and wind, olive trees, oaks and horses, nuragic and pagan places of worship, Nuraghi and sacred wells, ceremonial and ancient healing places, where the element of water was worshipped as a goddess: S' Abba Santa. (The Holy Water).
It represents the story of a land and its people, of their different communities which have handed down their long life genes and their own genius loci for thousands of years.
As the geneticists who have studied them have said, these people and this land have something which makes them unique.
And these people also have many stories to tell … to those who know how to listen...
