A village of medieval origin that preserves the original urban fabric of the Catalan era, Atzara stands in an area rich in forests and cultivated areas, particularly vineyards and orchards. There are several beauties that the village offers, but one is the characteristic that best describes it: this village is in fact known, in addition to its colours and the light that makes each view unique, for the typical headdress of the traditional female dress, depicted in the most famous works of Sardinian painters of the first half of the 20th century. Spanish costume painters Eduard Chicharro and Antonio Ortiz Echagüe painted here, followed by Sardinians Antonio Ballero, Filippo Figari, Giuseppe Biasi, Mario Delitala, Carmelo Floris and Stanis Dessì. Today, this art is still alive, preserved in the 'Antonio Ortiz Echagüe' Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, which houses the works of these great artists.
