Absolutely stunning church. The outer facade is unassuming which makes the inside even more spectacular. The decorations are breath-taking. The vaults under the main part of the church are sublime.

Great architecture and interesting interior but the best part of this is the journey to it and the surroundings.

We walked up to the cathedral and found it a really easy walk. Beautiful views. I really liked the crypt but well worth a visit.

Located next door to the Palazzo high on the hill in the old part of town. Large cathedral, not as ornate as some, but with a great alter, paintings and stations of the cross. Well worth a visit.

Line 7 seems to connect the main boulevard with the old town, passing close to the cathedral. The Cathedral is situated in the centre of Cagliari, only a few hunderd metres from the boulevard. If you go up the Viale Regina... More
