Oristano was my re-entry to city life after wandering the West coast of Sardinia for nearly a week. While not anything to go out of your way for, Oristano was a nice place to stroll around for an afternoon and evening – particularly the city center (as is usually the case).
Medieval times saw the most action here as this city waged war with other Sardinian powers for control of the island. The pictured statue next to city hall honors Eleanor of Arborea, known for her promulgation of the Carta di Logu – the legal code of the Arborea region that stood from 1392 until 1827. Today, Oristano is a relatively sleepy town with some interesting shops that I’m not sure “Tigger” would be too fond of.
