My wife and I have seen a lot of Cathedrals and this is one of the best. It is not the largest but they went all out in the design. It is hard to describe and has to be seen. If I had the time I would like to know how they were able to build such a beautiful Cathedral... More

The site gives you a view of the sea and the port. Nice church, overlooking the sea, from there you can have a nice walk to the harbor and the via Roma.

I love this church, I was converted, had my first communion, got married here and baptised my first son here. This is not because it's local, it's because it's the best, it is a wonderful piece of architecture, the place itself, feels powerful significance in the history of the island and it's the church that the Pope comes to visit...

This monument is not in the celebrated district of Castello. However, it is worth a visit: nice church, interesting museum, good souvenir shop. You can walk from the port - it's very easy and not far away, or take Linea 5, Linea 31 or Linea 30. Linea 5 takes you in front of the church. If you ride Linea 30... More

About 1 km southeast of Via Roma, this is easily acessible by walking from the centre of town, or taking the no. 5 bus. Absolutely worth a visit. The views from here are worthy of a photo or two.

Just outside of the main part of town but still in easy walking distance. Lovely church architecture both inside and out.

The sanctuary sits on top of a long and wide staircase, it has a lovely facade and it will surprise you on the inside, with an unusual layout (I won't say more). It was build after a shipwreck brought to shore a wooden box containing a dark skinned Madonna. It is a large church which differentiates itself from the many... More

Take the number 5 bus from via Roma to the Basilica di Bonaria in around 10 minutes. We were disappointed that the main sanctuary was closed when we visited, but worth seeing nonetheless.
