    It is one of the oldest and the most important sanctuary of the island. It became one of the landmark of Cagliari. Its origin came back to 14th century. The famous statue of the Virgin Mary (can be seen inside) has an interesting legend. The sanctuary is located on a hill on the eastern part. The building itself is impressive, nice architecture, but the interior is less beautiful.

    As you are driving from Olbia to Alghero you cannot miss this imposing church which is located in the nearby Codrongiano village. The history says that it was firstly completed in 1116, on the pre-existing ruins of a monastery, thanks to the financial support of Costantino I di Torres who, after visiting another monastery, praying the Virgin Mary for a son and having his wish granted, decided to repay the monks by gifting them a new church and a place to live and pray. It was built in a Romanic-Pisan style.
    It is worth paying to go inside and next to parking place is a small restaurant which serves refreshments and some local food.

    Commanding a breathtaking spot overlooking the Golfo dell Asinara its worth the bracing uphill walk into the old town to visit here.

    This is an eleventh century church and was, for a Catholic church, extremely low key. Built of granite and with almost no interior decoration or side rooms it was quite a shock. Normally we spend quite a while in these buildings and take loads of photos but I actually took more in the cafe we went to, just across the piazza. There is an underground car park below the Piazza and we were intending to visit the necropolis there too but it was closed.

    the architecture (inside and out) is superb and highly original. But the El Greco is the worst I have ever seen.

    We visited Orune for the last weekend of Autunno in Barbagia and couldn’t skip the opportunity to see this ancient and mystical temple. The grounds are beautiful and well curated while maintaining the purity of the wildness of Sardinia. The trails are marked with handcrafted signs marking the flora and fauna of the area which keeps the trail interesting. There are a couple traditional pastoral dwellings along the way and when you arrive at the Temple it is truly awe inspiring. Imagining that humans constructed this temple thousands of years ago is mind boggling when you see the detail and the precision in each stone. Highly recommend this off the beaten path find.

    Really interesting site, and very well kept. The people working at the information desk are extremely kind and efficient. The site is rather extended, it's nice to walk around and visit the different parts. Everything is well explained. The sacred well is unique! (See photo)

    It's a pretty simple church, but the true gem is underground. Burial chambers were used between the 2nd and 7th centuries. Very interesting, accessible on a guided visit.

    Easily visible from the road, six km east the black church of Santa Maria del Regno, this great church with a campanile and remains of associated buildings. The entrance opens to a narthex, above which were 3 rooms reached by a narrow stair. The first with a bench and a chimney, was the chapter house, beside which was the Bishp’s Chapel. The church is oddly coherent with uniform columns, and an apse splendidly placed above a low cliff

    Behind the altar is an exquisite carved and gilded series of panels. This luttle church is really a gem and worth a detour. On the left side of the church facing the entrance, one of the local adies has created a mini museum of Ardara culture and you can see anique household goods and farm implements. She also sells delicious homemade pecorino cheese. We bought a whole wheel to take home.

    A lovely tiled dome, a number of opulent chapels and other expressive details are the highlights of this great church in the heart of Alghero.

    This church has so much importance for the original inhabitants of the capital of Sardinia. It is from here that the Island's major feast on 1st May starts from. Since 366 years ago and even during the WW2 bombings.

    Beautiful little church in the middle of town. Has some really nice mosaic pictures as you walk along. It isn't very big but still worth seeing. AND ITS FREE! A must see if you like visit old school churches.

    The history here is outstanding. In one place you have stone age, bronze age, and a timeless holy spring.
    The drive to get here can be long and with young children they may not appreciate the history.
    Additionally there is just a small wooden ladder to enter which may be tricky for them or those with limited mobility.
