We visited early afternoon during the week so there was no service going on. Beautiful, ornate and sometimes quite eery church because of the size/height. Its right in the old town centre and difficult (at first) to find, but then you realise that you've probably...More

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.

Lovely cathedral but we visited on a Sunday morning when mass was just about to start so couldn't spend much time looking around.

Not quite sure what other reviewers had been drinking before reviewing but this is a dark austere building inside, the cathedral in Cagliari is much more inspiring.

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.

This cathedral is pretty austere, and as churches go rather modest. The architecture is not spectacular, but there are some beautiful statues and decorations inside.

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.
