Aritzo is also very well-known for its chestnuts and every year, (the last sunday of October) a large, charming festival is celebrated in their honour.

Another important appointment is the "Sa Carapigna" festival. The festival is celebrated during the summertime, the 15th of August.

The village's main road is Corso Umberto I, where you can admire the Church of St. "Michele Arcangelo" which dates back to the sixteenth-century.  You'll also find the ex Spanish prisons established in 1600 called "Sa Bovida", and the Arangino Castle ,built in 1917 in neo-Gothic style, by the order of Cav. Vincenzo Arangino.
The village is well-known for its old buildings made of shale and adorned with typical wooden balconies.
