Ancient codes and precious frescoes
A journey through Logudoro and Planargia, in Sardinia’s north-western region, to discover some of the most interesting Romanesque Christian architecture built between the late XI and early XII centuries
In the territory that once belonged to the giudicato (reign) of the Torres clan in the north-western corner of the island are some of the most elaborate expressions of Sardinian Romanesque architecture: two in the Logudoro-Meilogu, the former cathedral of San Pietro di Sorres in Borutta and the church of San Nicola di Trullas in the small town of Semestene, as well as another former cathedral in Bosa, Planargia’s main town: San Pietro extra muros, just outside the walls of the picturesque town, along the banks of the Temo river.
