One of the curiosities which should not be missed in a trip to Sardinia is the tradition of cork craftwork. In the past, cork was such an important product that it was even used by the local people to make roof tiles. Today, it is used mainly for trinkets and household objects (such as vases and services of tableware lined with cork), as well as for millions of wine corks in various shapes and sizes.
The "capitals" of cork production are Calangianus and Tempio Pausania, in the north of the island.
