Delightful interior, always worth looking around, most churches have some unusual artefact. This one has a huge bell just inside the door.

If you are in Alghero it is worth a visit. Attractive ceiling, nice marble work on alter and alter rail. It has a rather grand side chapel.

We noticed this church while walking around the board walk and took a diversion to visit it, it was a beautiful quite church with melodious music in the background. Absorb the soothing peace & light a candle.

Worth a visit for the quite beautiful marble in the church. Close to the city center and free. Interactive guide didn't appear to work in English but we still enjoyed out visit

You can find Chiesa di San Francesco in the middle of "Centro storico" of Alghero. Visit it, if you pass by!

Beautiful church in the centre of the old town - worth a visit. Many of the Easter processions seemed to start here.

It's easy to pop into this church as you walk around Alghero. Not worth a specific trip to go there, but if you pass by, definitely enter. There are several similar churches in the walled city.
