You will walk past this so many times when you are in Alghero so you might as well have a peek. We went in when mass was being said so could not get a proper walk around.

This is a lovely cathedral to walk round and see the many different alters surrounding the outer walls. Very peaceful to sit and take it all in.

Very atmospheric and real feel to this wonderfully old cathedral. It seems to be open all the time even at night. You can go up to the bell tower for a small fee. Didn't do it myself because a bit claustrophobic.

Went there as it is one of Alghero's most famous attractions. The exterior is a bit misleading, as it looks as though it was bit 50 years ago, but inside is quite different. Just go in there, and no matter what religion you are, just...More
