Atzara, city of wine, has a strong connotation of agricultural practices and traditional knowledge and is part of the Mandrolisai, an inter-municipal geographical area with a strong enogastronomic vocation. Known since the Middle Ages for its excellent wine production, thanks to the presence of numerous vineyards anda particular microclimate.
The historic center is divided into the ancient districts of Su Fruscu, Lodine, Montiga and josso, Montiga and Susu, Sa Cora Manna, Su Cuccuru de Santu Giorgi and Tz ùri, with old houses and buildings of a more monumental character built mainly in granite. Of a certain importance is the church of San Giorgio, built before 1205.
Characteristic is the parish church of Sant'Antioco martire, from the end of the 15th century, with a simple smooth and large facade central rose window, in Aragonese Gothic style and previous bell tower in Romanesque style. In the surroundings, the remains of 'domus de janas ' (locality of Corong iu Senes), 'tombs of the giants ' and the nuraghe of Abbagadda.
Museum of Modern Art
The themes dealt with in the works are different, in fact we find traditional themes but also landscapes treated
according to expressionist tendencies. Varieties of styles, therefore, of historical periods, but always great artistic personalities that have marked the history of art, not only of Atzara, but of the whole of Sardinia.
The parish church of Sant'Antioco is reached from Via Regina Margherita through narrow streets that open up into a small irregular square whose medieval appearance derives from the austerity of the church façade and from the urban context rich in testimonies
of the past . The building must have been built at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, in line with the syncretistic and popular trend that characterizes the provincial architecture of the period on the island.
The elevation of the cult building, expanded in width, presents a wall facing with an accurate cut all in trachyte; the flat terminal is resolved by a cornice on which the trachyte, trilobed battlements rest. portal
is surmounted by a rose window with a radial column joined by arches; two semicircular windows, on the sides, illuminate the side aisles. On the right side and partly incorporated into the church, is the bell tower, with a square barrel, in trachyte , with horizontally distinguished mirrors by string courses and single lancet windows with pointed and
round arches. The tower ends with a stone balustrade enclosure, very similar to that of the presbytery enclosure of the neighboring rural sanctuary of San Mauro, in the countryside of Sorgono.
