Basilica of Saccargia • Sardinia

map of the holy trinity of saccargia near sassari

Our journey between the hills, the countrysides, a few trees, where the view is free to see and imagine, suddenly a monument, and the look is completely captured by the Church of the Holy Trinity of Saccargia, powerful image and compelling shapes, and you think that the place is at least unusual for the location of a work of such prestige. The church was finished in 1116 over the ruins of a pre-existing monastery, and consecrated on October 5 of the same year. Its construction was ordered by the giudice (duke) of Torres. It was entrusted to Camaldolese monks who here founded an abbey. It was later enlarged in Pisane style, including the addition of the tall bell tower. The portico on the façade is also probably a late addition, and is attributed to workers from Lucca.
