  • The Basilica dates from the 6th century, making it the first example of early Christian architecture. It was built on the site of the martyrdom of Saturno, who was the owner of Cagliari. It was rebuilt between 1082 and 1119 and remained intact until the year 1669 when the basilica was destroyed with the aim to reconstruct the Cathedral.

  • We saw this church only from the outside because a sign indicated that can be visited only on Friday afternoons and at certain times on Saturdays and Sundays. The exterior of the glass is very nice.

  • The Basilica of San Saturnino (also dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian) is the oldest church in Cagliari, dedicated to the patron saint of the city. The church is mentioned for the first time in the early 6th century. This church had been likely erected near the burial place of St. Saturninus of Cagliari, who, according to the Passio sancti Saturni (a medieval document telling the saint's story), had been martyred in 304. The legend states that he was beheaded for refusing to offer sacrifices to Jupiter during the persecutions of Christians by Diocletian.
  • Basilica of great historical interest, situated in the center of town and easily accessible on foot from via Roma, harbour front. Unfortunately it is rarely open to the public, but it's really a show. If you can see it is really a nice experience both spiritual and cultural history. Should start a short further excavations for the discovery of archaeological remains of considerable importance.
