“Stunning space”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

From the locked church above and the small not particularly well advertised side door to the crypt you have no idea what awaits you.
Under the church is a stunning space that has been used for a variety of purposes over the years. During WWII it was a a shelter and home for those who lost their houses.
It is a wonderful and completely unexpected space, and with free entry to boot.

“stones talks”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

opens 10am to 01pm. Free. Going down steps to history. Nothing much to see. You will be disappointed if you want to find a baroque design. It's a crypt carved in the rock. But history is there… You can just feel it. Don't forget to read the presentation outside before going down

“Right down my road”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Cripta di Santa Restituta was on the same road I was staying, which was very inspiring of them, mind you they decided to do this some 2000 years before I was born or even I decided to visit Cagliari.

The entrance is free and the lovely Italian guy at the entrance was not bored or moody to answer my brief questioning. Step down the stairs, ignore the water leakage that might 'baptise' you from time and time and be mesmerised where from these guys were taking the strength to survive during the several medieval occupations.
