Chiesa San Giacomo, Cagliari

5.0
Admire the stonemasonry of Chiesa San Giacomo, in the historic district of Villanova. Begun in the 14th century, the building features a 30 m (98 ft) rectangular Neo-Gothic belfry and a Neo-Classical facade with Corinthian columns. One of the first Gothic-style buildings in Sardinia, the church served as a model for a number of other religious structures on the island. Check out the main altar, made of polychrome marble, and a presbytery enclosed by a marble balustrade and covered by an elaborate vault. To plan Cagliari vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Beautiful architectural structure that had Yes several reconstructions, but retains a strong architectural identity, Central in the Villanova quarter. The simple façade, encloses a church the size of interest, where the chancel with the big Gothic arch is balanced and harmonic theatrical backdrop, where blends the Baroque altar in white marble steps. On the sides of the nave chapels open that retain different artworks, the most important statue of the crucifix, considered miracle, object of devotion and the famous procession of the mysteries. To see!

  • Saint James ' Church is located in the historic district of Villanova behind Via Garibaldi. It is a very old church, built perhaps around 1300. The façade was designed by Gaetano Cima. It's a church "Collegiate Church", that is very important for worship. During Holy week in the adjacent oratory of Santissimo Crocifisso church services are held of touching with the procession of the mysteries.
