Religious Site Church
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.

  • Beautiful Romanesque church built in the 13th century by the Benedictines structure is trachyte lovely. Around the Church are noticed traces of buildings would be nice to dig to give more light to its history. If you like Castelsardo meta recommend a visit in tergu to visit this little gem

  • It is one of the places I visit every time I come around here ... It is one of the most beautiful churches in the North of Sardinia, in my opinion, both for its architecture but also for the deep piety that makes you breathe this holy place. makes you collect yourself and a great sense of peace.

  • 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
