17.30 – Find out about the Tonnara “Su Pranu”. A guided tour of the tuna fishery “Tonnara Su Pranu”, flagship of the local history, run by the Municipality of Portoscuso. A one hour tour taking off from the Tonnara’s entrance.

The tuna fishery “Tonnara Su Pranu” was built in the mid 1600’s. Over the centuries however the structure has undergone several changes due to the numerous attacks by barbary pirates all along the Sardinian coast therefor hitting also Portoscuso and Su Pranu. Nowadays, the tuna fishery building has taken a trapezoidal shape complete with warehouses and lodging for the tuna fishermen (in the lateral wings of the structure), while  inside is a rather large courtyard overlooking the sea that still conserves an original marble sundial. The main lodgings are on the second floor, while on the first floor are the custodian’s, Rais’ and the deputy Rais’ lodgings. A bronze bell, in front of the Rais’s lodgings, was rung in order to gather the fishermen. The fishery was self-sufficient, equipped with an oven for baked goods, a wine cellar, machine shops and warehouses for food storage as well as for fishing gear, nets and ropes. During the tuna slaughter a flag with a red cross on white backdrop was hoisted up near the custodian’s house.

Deserving some mention is the Marquises Vivaldi Zatrillas’ coat of arms on the entrance arch to the tuna fishery as well as the small church dedicated to Santa Maria d’Itria and Sant’Antonio, guardian of the tuna fishermen. Tradition had it that during the procession in honor of the patron Saints and during the Corpus Domini, the boats would set sail from Su Pranu in order to bless the sea.


Arriving from the square we come to the Antica Tonnara of Su Pranu, the original nucleus built at the end of the 16th century under the Spanish rule, where still today, the structures for the processing of bluefin tuna, the salt warehouse and the little church of Sant’Antonio overlook the inner courtyard. On the first floor we will visit the rooms that housed rich families for centuries, leaving important traces of their lives.

We will also visit the inside of the typical tonnarotti  (typical name of the tuna fishermen) house, traditionally called shack, also used for processing the internal organs of the tuna. During the visit we will delve into the fishing techniques used, the rituals connected to them as well as the everyday aspects of living in such a community.

As we continue our tour we will explore the historical center of Portoscuso flanking the small beach Sa Caletta on a panoramic walk until we reach the Spanish tower.  Inside we will examine the architectural aspects, the historical events that made it protagonist as well as the aspects of coral fishing. The tower’s terrace is the most striking viewpoint of the town, from which we can admire the surrounding coastal landscape and the two islands on the opposite coast, Sant’Antioco and Carloforte.

Finally, we conclude the guided tour of the Tonnara local, decorated according to the Sardinian tradition, where we can admire an exhibition of the most significant handcrafted products, artifacts made from the reed plant, shawls with traditional embroidery, etc.
