Galleria Comunale d’Arte

Housed inside the public gardens of Cagliari, this limestone building contains works of prominent artists from Sardinia and Italy as a whole. The collection is continuously enriched with new acquisitions, and the high-tech equipment of the gallery has made it possible to create a specialized route for blind guests.

Do & See

Under the arcades of Via Roma, in Largo Cargo Felice and Yenne Square, you will find the historical cafés of the city with their adorable outdoor tables. Here, espresso and cappuccino accompanied by small puff pastries are a real ceremony. Below Saint Remy Bastion, two pedestrian streets host mostly fashionable shops, which make them perfect for a walk and for a shopping afternoon: Via Manno and Via Garibaldi. Lastly, Castello is the ancient district perched on top of the hill, from which your gaze will reach the lagoon and lakes, taking your breath away. Here, the aristocracy and rulers of the city used to live throughout Cagliari's history. Indeed, even today, the coat of arms is visible on the edifice's front doors. In Castello, many places deserve a visit, so take your time to appreciate them all.
