Castelsardo is one of “The most beautiful borgo of Italy”, located in the north of Sardinia, on a promontory near the sea. The valleys and hills embrace the city, founded by the Genoese family of the Doria family who called it Castelgenovese.


One of the most important monuments is the Cathedral of St. Anthony Abbot.

Not far away, surrounded by high walls that provide a backdrop to the square before it, is the Church of Santa Maria, the seat of the Confraternity of the Holy Cross, where the very old sacred performances begin during Holy Week.
