Impressive cathedral
Sep 2019
We had a lunch stop in Oristano. The large cathedral was the main site of interest we visited. It originally dated from 1130, but has been rebuilt and renovated since.
Worth visiting the cathedral if you have some time in Oristano. It is a short walk from the pleasant main square of the town.

Largest in Sardinia
Sep 2019
The cathedral is the largest in Sardinia. It was elevated by Pius XII to the rank of minor basilica. In 1131 it was already a cathedral.
We came during a choir practice and it was an amazing experience.

NICE CHURCH

This place is on a very nice square with a little garden, inside the atmosphere is very simple and very nice to take some time in silence.

Not overly pleased to receive visitors

Large church on the edge of the old town, it’s towers visible from most angles of the city.
A nice and cool escape from the warmth of outside with a towering ceiling. The walls & ceiling are covered with art & ornate stonework, inlays etc, the usual decadence you see in most Cathedrals but especially those in Italy.
The building has an incredible echo, clearly evident but the old ladies bustling around & presumably setting up for a wedding the following day. On this occasion it certainly wasn’t a place for quiet contemplation & I was a little shocked to see a group of three young women get barked away with an echoing, “Closed!”. I can only guess they weren’t as brave when it came to a late thirties single Male.
Probably a good photo inside during the day but almost certainly rammed with tourist. During the evening it has its charm, but could really do with more lighting.

A very nice vast cathedral with integrated chapels and bell tower.
It is recommended to visit it when at Oristano.

Beautiful church
Sep 2018 • Couples
This church dominates a piazza in the center of town. It is impressive from the outside. Inside, it is a lovely church, with several interesting side altars.

The ceilings we especially interesting.

Attractive building

Exterior features a lovely and unusual tower in almost minaret style .Interior proportions are impressive and well balanced with a baptistery and many frescoes and some stained glass.

Visited the church briefly during a stop in Oristano. Nicely decorated on the inside, it’s certainly worth it. The pulpit in particular drew our attention.

Lovely building, nice piazza outside for a rest or to eat your sandwiches! Lovely interior - not spectacular but worth a look.

Beautiful architecture and a must see when touring Oristano. Superb lines and splendour and very easy to find in almost the town centre.
