HISTORICAL CENTER

CASTELLO

The medieval district of Castello (Castle) is the symbol of Cagliari and the first destination for a city tour. Founded by the Pisans in the early thirteenth century, it shows its imposing walls, the Pisan towers of San Pancrazio and of the Elephant and the narrow streets filled with ancient palaces. You can visit the elegant Viceregal Palace, the old Palace of the city now converted into an exhibition space, the cathedral of Santa Maria and the Museums Citadel, home to the National Archaeological Museum, a veritable treasure trove of history and art.

STAMPACE

The Stampace district, probably the oldest of the four historic districts of Cagliari, is situated to the west of the Castle, ideally divided into two parts: the upper part with its narrow alleys and streets that meander through the old houses and the lower part, characterized by vibrant streets full of shops and clubs. In the upper part, the heart of Stampace, stands the church of Saint Efisio martyr, to whom the people of Cagliari are very devoted, as who is credited with the liberation of the city from the plague in the 17th century.

THE MARINA

The Marina district that stands between the port and the upper part of the city, is characterized by several narrow streets, very ancient palaces and beautiful and interesting churches. Among the most famous and important ones is the parish of St. Eulalia in the Gothic style, the one of the Tomb, belonging to the order of the Templars and that of St. Augustine. Originally populated by families of fishermen and port workers, today is the most multi-ethnic district of Cagliari, rich in restaurants, inns and taverns where you can taste typical Sardinian dishes and especially the authentic Cagliari seafood.

VILLANOVA

The district situated at the foot of the east slope of the hill where the Castle is located, had an agricultural origin proved by the numerous orchards and vineyards that surround it. Today you can see its old part, characterized by simple homes on one or two floors and the new part further downstream with new buildings sprung up since the 1930s. Villanova, in the old part, in addition to ancient temples of worship, is home of the two most ancient archconfraternities dealing with celebrations of the authentically Spanish (Jesuit) matrix holy week, with singers still today recruited between the original popular families of the neighborhood.
