This is a beautiful church, though the inside is more interesting than the outside. It is considered the best example of Baroque art in Cagliari. It dates from the 1700’s. Worth a quick visit since it is close the several other attractions.

Definitely worth a trip. Camouflaged up a side street this beautiful church serves as an oasis against the sweltering heat of Cagliari. It is so calm and peaceful inside with beautiful paintings on the ceilings.

We went especially for the guided tour in English at 10.30. Unfortunately there wasn't one. So we viewed the masterpieces ourselves, especially the magnificent sacristy. Recommended

Dating back to 16th century, this church is mostly recognisable for its baroque decor from 18th century. Chapels, ceilings, dome and pulpit are all lavishly ornamented. Outside the church, there's an old four-columned, stone pulpit - the Spanish emperor Carlos V is said to have...More

You could spend an hour or more here even if you are not a religious person. It is full of historical artefacts and is located in a wonderful square. A really good place to walk around even if you only have a few minutes.

Very ornate inside with tremendous art work all around. Volunteers provide free guided tours of the interior with information in a number of languages. A must-see, better than the cathedral.

There are many churches in the city but this is one of the best. Outside looks ok but inside it is excellent so well worth the visit.
