Unsurprisingly, being located in the heart of the ‘city of stone’, it was made entirely from granite and embellishes the historic centre with its majestic appearance. The cathedral of San Pietro Apostolo is the main place of worship in Tempio Pausania, a town in Gallura at the foot of Mount Limbara, ‘carved’ into the granite rocks and surrounded by landscapes dotted with woods and springs. Its initial structure was medieval, dating back to the early 13th century, but it underwent numerous changes over the centuries. Its current appearance is the result of renovation carried out between 1832 and 1839, during which a span was added by ‘moving’ the façade ‘forward’. When the work was finished, it was reconsecrated and elevated to cathedral status for the diocese of Ampurias and Tempio.
