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.

  • 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.

  • We looked at the lovely little church during a walk through our holiday village. You can see the foundations for more old buildings from the 15th century. The Church is regularly used and is very well preserved as a result.

  • Although Tergu seems a little depressing, the castle and the calvary is very impressive
