It owes its fame to the fact that, for a long time, it was the stage of legends and the custodian of one of the most famous works of religious art in Sardinia, the Retable of Saint George, among the largest wooden altarpieces on the Island. However, it also continues to preserve another unique element: on the façade, above the portal, there is a sculpted figurine depicting the legendary scene of the saint, to whom the church is dedicated, with the dragon. The Church of San Giorgio, dedicated to the patron saint and martyr of Barcelona, ​​is located a kilometre and a half from Perfugas in an area dotted with archaeological evidence, one element of which is a very short distance from the sanctuary: a single-tower nuraghe, also called San Giorgio.
