The church is beautiful and fun to find with all the small streets winding around it. Beautiful inside and out and the area around it is nice too.

Beautiful Cathedral, well cared for and with precious works of art, incredible visit that can be made in about 40 minutes and climb the tower for three euros.

Impressive cathedral
Sep 2019
This cathedral is up in the Castello District of Cagliari. This is an area of Cagliari which is well worth spending some time in.
The cathedral was built in the 13th century. Impressive detail inside and out. Make sure you visit it while exploring Cagliari.

Really beautiful exterior facade

I wish we had spend a little more on visiting this Cathedral. We were mesmerized by the dramatic exterior. It’s beautiful at night when it’s lit up.

Worth going below
Sep 2019
I am not for one minute religious but do admire the architecture and skill of those who produced these religious piles. On that basis I found that this did not disappoint. The crypt is not the usual dark and oppressive place you some times encounter. It's worth a look.

Very busy
Sep 2019
We had visited quite a few churches in Sardinia but this was definitely the busiest of them all. The entry was free which was a bonus and the interior was very nice. The crypt was also very busy, but I would recommend a quick visit.
