There is a combination between an very old construction and the newer entrance that feet very well. The chance to visit the cathedral when the organ music play offer more glossy to the marble and brigs apart peace. It is placed in the shopping area very accessible at any time of the day.

The cathedral is in middle of the Alghero Old Town and you can step inside the church from morning to late evening. It is large and you can spend there quite some time admiring the details and finally climb to the bell tower ( don't do it near 12 o´clock because it is impossible to stay there when the bells...

This is an extremely old cathedral and well worth a visit. It was very quiet whilst we were there and therefore easy to get around and see everything.
