The Basilica is average when compared with other basilicas in town. The views from here to the castello district, grave yards, and harbor are pretty good. It is easy to access from the marina via bus line 5.

This church is a bit out of the center. An interesting church, as far as churches go, with a long history. It's a bit of a climb up, so you have to be prepared. Good views of the city and the cemetery below.

It's a lovely church and well worth a visit if you're in the area, but I wouldn't rate it as the top attraction in Cagliari. We spent about 45 mins inside, and a while longer in the grounds trying to make friends with the local cats! Amazing views of the cemetery round the back.

Visited this church fairly early in the morning as part of our morning walk. Not many people around. The interior of the church is quite appealing and it was quite peaceful. The cemetery is next to it, and the views from the gardens of the church are nice. It is quite a walk from the old town

Worth the walk, the facade is beautiful! We didn't go inside. Just admire the structure and the views. Definitely worth it!

We loved this church! Also the interesting story behind the statue that washed up on shore. Amazing! It's worth visiting for sure! We attended Sunday mass and it was lovely. We also entered the holy door to visit the statue and it was beautiful.

went here because rated 1 on things to do but couldn't see why. Church is quite attractive from the outside but not inside. Walked back through the cemetery which also wasn't very appealing

Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria at Cagliari is worth a visit in a nice setting overlooking the bay. It is about a 20 minutes walk from city centre, but you can combine it with a plesant walk along the corniche.

Pleasant way to end a stroll along the boardwalk from the Marina area of Cagliari though there are several steps to negotiate. The grotto is worth spending a few minutes in.
