Important Basilica for the people of Cagliari. There are the old and the new Church. The history of the basilica is very interesting and as well the museum with his old boats.

Absolutely beautiful and a breathtaking view! The history of Cagliari with all of the magnificent churches and the basilica will give you lifelong memories. We have been there many times. Lots of Italian weddings take place at the Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria.
