  • The beauty of this Church looks from afar, when he appears before our eyes the dome with lantern and embellished with polychrome majolica tiles. Recognized as one of the main examples of Baroque art in Sardinia, built in the mid-600 out of a church dedicated to St. Michael, dating back to the fourteenth century, the Church is situated in the heart of the city, near the entrance of the promenade

  • Being the feast of Saint Michael was tiring access to the Church for the huge crowd but it was worth it. I also heard, in the square outside the Church, the town's brass band that performed at a concert. Great party atmosphere in the old and historic. Go and visit it.

  • Beautifully understated Catholic church in the southern part of Alghero's centro storico. The tile-covered dome is best seen from the southwest, near Proscutteria Sant Miquel (also very much worth a visit). The interior is much simpler than other churches in the region, with relief carvings in the archways above the aisles. A nice late medieval example of ecclesiastical architecture in Sardinia, and worth a moment to appreciate.
  • Beautiful church with beautiful interior all in white marble, attractive times the sky and the many frescoes, to visit for those who switch to Alghero, nice also the altar on the bottom and all the aisles. There are several statues and San Michele is beautiful, don't forget to put it on the agenda of the places to visit

  • Beautiful church; simple and inner façade baroque without being too busy. We stumbled upon the sermon of the priest who said some very interesting things about love and mutual support in the society. Very friendly.
