Overlooking Piazza Duomo, Alghero’s oversized Cattedrale di Santa Maria appears out of place with its pompous neoclassical facade and fat Doric columns. An unfortunate 19th-century addition, the facade was the last in a long line of modifications that the hybrid cathedral has endured since it was built, originally on Catalan Gothic lines in the 16th century. Inside it’s largely Renaissance, with some late-baroque baubles added in the 18th century.

Free guided tours of the cathedral are available between 10am and 1pm and then from 4pm to 6pm Monday to Friday between February and October.
