Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Chiesa San Giacomo at Cagliari is an interesting church, worth a visit. Several historical artefacts inside.  more »
  • Nice cozy especially big and roomy below are chapels where there remains of priests
    View original
  • 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!
