Tergu is characterised by the genuineness and hospitality of its inhabitants, excellence in food production – farmers and herders produce handmade cheeses and tasty sausages – and the tranquility of the area which, together with the greenery and healthy air, make it a locality of “good living”. It has a temperate climate, cooled by the sea breeze, and large expanses of greenery that cheer the soul.

The various agricultural activities taking place around the town give visitors an insight into the times and dynamics of pastoral and rural life.
It is a town with very close ties to its historical and religious traditions, including one that deserves mention: the Nativity of Mary on 8 September, whose festivities last for three days, from 7 to 9 September. In addition to the religious procession, the feast attracts thousands of people because of its characteristic folklore: parades with costumes from the different regions of Sardinia, a knights on horseback challenge, a food festival and dancing late into the night. Another traditional festivity that is equally loved is that of “Lunissanti”. It is celebrated on the Monday before Easter. Apart from religious rituals, parades, processions and a cappella choral songs which mark different times of the day and evening, this is a real country festival full of joy that brings together families and young people.
