Religious Site
Nostra Signora di Tergu is a parish church in Tergu, province of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy. One of the most outstanding examples of Romanesque architecture in the island, the church and the remains of the annexed abbey are located in a countryside area outside the village.The construction of the church is attributed to the Giudice of Torres Marianus I, who reigned from 1065 to 1082. In 1122 it was a possession of the abbey of Montecassino. It is mentioned in the Pseudocondaghe of Santa Maria di Tergu as having been consecrated in 1117, and built by workers from Pisa and Lombardy. In 1444 the church and the monastery became part of the archdiocese of Torres.OverviewThe church was built using slabs of red trachyte and of brighter limestone for the decorations. The façade, which is missing the upper part (crumbled down during the centuries) is divided into two levels. The lower one has two corner pilasters and two semicolumns supporting two arches with finely decorated archivolts in limestone. The central portal has an architrave with capitals, also in limestone, sculpted with acanthus motifs.

  • The Church of our Lady is one of the jewels (in Sardinia) that you do not have to lose if visiting the area of Castelsardo (10 km away). Was the star of our wedding in 2003 and its appeal has remained intact even increased thanks to archaeological remains brought to light. I repeat: not to be missed.

  • You should be a little smaller, mountainous and winding roads, but then you will be rewarded with a beautiful Romanesque church. The beautiful dark red stone creates a picturesque whole.

  • In our stay in castelsardo visited this church in tergu. a place of worship in my opinion that inspires great spirituality ... The structure, location, silence, lead to a moment of Interior recollection that while on vacation is good for the soul.

  • Although Tergu seems a little depressing the castle and the calvary is very impressive
  • a wonderful historical testimony of the 12th-century architecture lies deep in a long Avenue with a beautiful cross contemporary granite sculptures. This little masterpiece is locked inside an enclosure where they appear still traces of the ancient Benedictine monastery, must in strong winds to discover a Sardinia never publicized but authentic
