Chiesa di San Michele, Cagliari

4.7
Admire the masterful maiolica floor of Chiesa di San Michele, a Jesuit church with marble statues and elaborate paintings. The 18th-century floor represents an elaborate Garden of Eden in vibrant colors. Take a walk around the building and feel the peaceful atmosphere while enjoying the view of numerous decorations, marble statues of saints, and carved wood. Left of the altar look for the sacristy that resembles a museum, with icons dating back to the 17th and 18th century.

  • Beautiful Baroque church. Usually is close for service in the evening and afternoon, better to schedule your visit in the morning

  • More than just a church, is an authentic monument, it gets, or the via ospedale, or from viale fra Ignazio, housed many frescoes, and many sculptures, and leant against an ancient tower of Pisa, well worth exploring, calmly.

  • Church and wonderful moment, there you can relive centuries of devotion of Cagliari to Jesuit doctrine and rediscover many frescoes and paintings of outstanding beauty, as well as being able to admire various wooden sculptures of sculptural quality schools. At certain times you can have a guided tour by a group of Saints Ignatius "living stones" that with great knowledge can tell the story of this beautiful church you can't visit Cagliari without knowledge of such beauty.
