Got a taxi from Alghero shared between 4 - we got off at the marina and wandered, finding the Basilica and spending a good hour there, alone. Almost as beautiful outside as inside.

One of the stops on a cruise. Situated at the top of the main road through the town. Nice building with an interesting crypt. In my mind the only place of interest in Porto Torres.

I visited this cathedral because I've read that is the biggest from Sardinia and also a Roman church. When you enter inside it you can smell the air of history and old. You get a paper at the entrance where you have all the information...More

Was on our tour stop. Rest rooms nearby for .50 E. I probably wouldn't go too far out of my way to see this if time is scarce. Worth the stop for us.
