Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Sardinia / Province of Sassari / Codrongianos / Basilica di Saccargia
The Basilica della Santissima Trinità di Saccargia is a church in the comune of Codrongianos, northern Sardinia, Italy. It is the most important Romanesque site in the island. The construction is entirely in local stone, with a typical appearance of Tuscan Romanesque style.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 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.The church was abandoned in the 16th century, until it was restored and reopened in the early 20th century.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Basilica di Saccargia by using our Codrongianos journey planner.

Gorgeous church, we loved it. Do pay the entry price to see the interesting inside when you have come so far (because it is quite a detour!)

We visited this place on the route from San Teodoro to Alghero and I must admit that it was worth it. It is one of the most important Romanesque monuments on the island. The structure is entirely made of local stone, with a typical Tuscan Romanesque appearance. Visiting for a small fee inside is possible from April to the end of October. Inside of the church is a small souvenir shop, and a cafe near the parking where we can drink coffee and eat a croissant.
Absolutely spectacular building, a really must see place!
The church in itself is wonderful. There is an entrance fee quite high, the tower is not accessible. A very poor description of history inside, you better study it in advance.
Nice spot to visit, smells of history and located in a very nice valley!
Pretty spot. I liked the gift shop! We didn’t pay the 4 € to get in the church, we just walked around. The architecture is apparently Tuscano-Romano.
