Siamaggiore is a town of almost 1000 inhabitants in nothern Campidano, characterised by a level, highly productive territory that coincides in large part with the lower valley of Tirso, the island’s biggest river. The most significant productions are of wheat and barley, with legumes and vegetables produced in smaller amounts. Between February and March, you can taste typical dishes by participating in the Artichoke Festival, which has attracted thousands of visitors every year since 1992. Local vineyards produce a fair amount of vernaccia. The modern agricultural enterprise of the Pardu Nou hamlet is an emblem of agricultural development in the territory. The reclaimed fertile lands surrounding the hamlet were once prone to flooding by the Tirso River and were used as a defensive barrier during the Saracen invasions of the 16th-17th centuries.
