  • The origins of this church date back to 1324 in order to offer spiritual assistance to soldiers engaged in the siege of the city. The statue of Virgin Mary is housed in the splendid sanctuary (City Tour Cagliari). The driver of the tour bus was nice enough to slow down so we, tourists can take a good shot of the church.
  • Nice cathedral and very nice view on the marina!
  • A marvellous, beautiful and cosy place - especially the garden around
  • The main Shrine of Sardinia and one of the most important worldwide, since it has been visited by four Popes: Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Francis. You worship a statue of our Lady of Bonaria, now known as prodigious from the sea in a case that is still preserved. The image is made of wood, in estofado de oro; the Virgin, in Regal attitude, keep the left arm the child Jesus, while in his right hand a lit candle. Numerous votive offerings, especially related to the sea, are preserved in various environments. A precious collection of over 150 models of various types and sizes proves the popularity of this Virgin with the sea peoples. There are two churches: a smaller ancient dating back to 1300 and is called the Sanctuary and has within it the original statue; the largest church (basilica) is newer and see celebrated the most important events of the Church of Cagliari and Sardinia. If the visitor has time and interest there are various unusual things and curious to see.
