  • Most beautiful church in Cagliari, many weddings during the morning and early afternoon, you can have a look at one of them if you are lucky. Classic Roman Catholic cathedral . 
  • Located in the fortified medieval castle, in the heart of the historic city centre. I visited because it contains in the right aisle is the chapel of the Black Madonna for the presence of a statue of the Madonna in Cedar of Lebanon and is one of three copies of the original statue of the Black Madonna that Saint Eusebius, Bishop of Vercelli, Cagliari and brought with him to return from his exile in Palestine in 362 (the other two are to Create and to Oropa).

  • To visit though since its construction in the 13th century underwent many alterations and by that time he was very little. The Interior is rich with gilt and marble. The Lions are now at the foot of the balustrade of the priest but originally a single pulpit. The most interesting is the crypt: three rock-cut chapels that accommodate the remains of Christian martyrs. The sides of the main entrance, opposite the façade, there are two beautiful pulpits that date from the 11th century. The entrance is free.
