While the roots of local arts and crafts are ancient, many of the traditional techniques are still in use today. When wandering around the town’s backstreets you may well stumble upon small workshops, and, if you peek in, you might just see the artisans at work using tools from the past: hand looms and chisels, potter’s wheels and knives.
The handiwork of weavers in Aggius never fails to fascinate visitors, and equally remarkable is the craft of local silversmiths and goldsmiths.
Pausania Inn’s Boutique, spread throughout the common areas of the hotel, is dedicated to local arts and crafts, and showcases a selection of gift items that draw from the rich heritage of Gallura, including fine ceramics, wood and stone sculptures, hand-woven textiles, and traditional Sardinian jewelry.
Our aim is to bring together the worlds of tourism and art. We hope our displays will help promote an appreciation of the Sardinian heritage, while creating an environment for you to enjoy as you relax on your holiday. If you so wish, you may purchase the arts and crafts on display directly from the artisans who made them: our staff will be happy to assist you and to give you any information you may need.
