  • The story of this church is quite interesting. I enjoyed visiting it.
  • Visited here on a day trip when docking in Porto Torres with Tui cruises.Basically there isn't a great deal to see or do in this dirty place.Having said that the beaches are clean but the town has dog mess everywhere⅞. Anyway we found this little place which is about a 20 minute walk from the town centre.It was built between 1030 and 1080 and has two apses facing each other.Refused to pay the entrance fee but from what I could see it there wasn't much to see inside.If you are religious then this may be for you.
  • Very wel maintained and for 3 euro you have acces to the church en crypt
  • It's a church, what else can I say ☺️
  • Beautiful and well maintained
