Basilica di Santa Giusta

The elevated position, impressive staircase and elegant little square in excellent condition give the Church of Santa Giusta a solemn big-city church tone. Located in the town of the same name in the province of Oristano, it is said to host the remains of Santa Giusta, a Christian martyr assassinated by Diocletian.

It is worth noting that the large tower is located at the side of the building, not in the center: the original bell tower in fact collapsed and the one we see today was built in the early 1900s.

The facade of sandstone blocks reflects the structure of the church, with the central part twice as high as the aisles. It was built in 1110 with influences from the Pisan school and was taken as an example by many structures in the Romanesque period on the island.
