This small village has fewer than 300 inhabitants living at the base of the Giara di Gesturi plateau, in the upper Marmilla. Albagiara became an independent municipality in 1959, upon being detached from Usellus. As a hamlet, it was called Ollastra Usellus before taking on its current name, which poetically refers to the sunrise at the edge of the Giara. The village is divided into four neighbourhoods: San Pietro, Planu-Ibba, Pinna Fiscura and Su Forraxi, characterised by stone houses and ancient portals.
