This is an interesting old church that has been added to over the centuries. Don't miss the oldest part, which is a little hidden away to the left of the main entrance. Also great panoramic views from outside.

Our tour guide took us here and told us about the history and miracle of the Basilica and how special it is to the people. It is breathtaking in its simplicity and was a highlight of our tour. Not to be missed!!

A must see on your visit to Cagliari. Very interesting, especially the story of the statue of the Virgin. The gift shop was brilliant. it's right next door to the cemetery which is also of interest and worth a visit. Thoroughly enjoyable.
