Cattedrale di Santa Maria, Alghero
(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Climb the colossal Cattedrale di Santa Maria, parts of which are World Heritage Sites, and gaze over the red roofs of Florence. The cathedral's dome displays Gothic architectural elements, both from the outside and the inside, and the structure's interior abounds with elegant artistic depictions, both on the walls and ceilings. You can climb to the very top of the bell tower to enjoy panoramic views, although you might want to avoid the cramped ascent if you suffer from claustrophobia. Take a tour in one of several languages or participate in mass, and prepare for your visit in advance to avoid wasting time waiting in queues. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cattedrale di Santa Maria by using our Alghero itinerary maker.

  • Beautiful atmosphere before Christmas in the town, which is in the winter, without the tourists. The Church is located a short distance from the sea in the old part of the city, just opposite the great cafes. Holiday time is definitely worth it!

  • Beautiful cathedral in the middle of town. Worth a visit and a read up on the local history.
  • Beautiful Cathedral, but deserves a special Bell Tower. The entrance door for a fee on the narrow staircase. The steps are so small and very narrow access spaces. But the effort is well rewarded when you get to the top. Breathtaking view over the city and the Bay. Interesting and enjoyable even the Guide's explanations that tells the story of the building and of the bells in it. To see
