Maybe one of the nicest buildings on the island to visit. San Gavino church is beautiful and remarks the Tuscan (Pisan) history of Sardinia. It is a Roman basilica from the 11th century and a real landmark in town. The crypt has also a surprise...More

One of the stops on a cruise. Situated at the top of the main road through the town. Nice building with an interesting crypt. In my mind the only place of interest in Porto Torres.
