Saint Anitoco of Bisarcio • Ozieri (Sardinia)

map of san antioco di bisarcio

The Basilica of Sant'Antioco of Bisarcio is one of the largest Romanesque Churches in Sardinia. The building is in an isolated rural site on a hill near Ozieri in the province of Sassari. This location gives the church a special charm. From the architectural point of view, we find elements of Pisan and Lombard Romanesque. On the facade develops the porch with three round arches, the central one leads from the narthex that has six cross vault. To the right of the we have the access stairs to the upper zone of the porch where we find a private Chapel of the Bishop of Bisarcio. The Church has a nave and two aisles: the central one has a cover consisting of wood trusses while the lateral have cross vaults. The atmosphere is dim with the soft light entering through tall, narrow single-lancet windows.
