Chiesa di Nostra Signora, Tergu

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.

  • So you must come on purpose, so the place is isolated, in the middle of the countryside just a few kilometres from Castelsardo. I've arrived with public buses, with a certain amount of luck. But those who choose to get there is richly rewarded: Nostra Signora di Tergu is a Romanesque masterpiece out of nowhere can be visited freely and in total solitude. A place of history, art, culture and peace with no one to tell you. I would like to advertise here.

  • The church Our Lady of Tergu, of the 12th century, is beautiful, a really particular style with its pink façade. Nice inside, too.

  • 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

  • Although Tergu seems a little depressing the castle and the calvary is very impressive
  • This place is spectacular because it is unexpected after isolated places. The color is original and well placed in the landscape context and is the characteristic that makes the face of this country Church. The Interior is austere and devoid of ornaments, silence reigns everywhere. The gaze turns continuously at the building that dominates the undisputed Lady on the grassland. It takes little to stop and it costs nothing, the Lady is okay and leaves us for share.

  • Former Benedictine monastery with a long history. Elaborate symbolism of the Romanesque through the portal. During the day the Church is open, admission free. From the outside, but the ancient House of God impressed the most.
