Basilica of the Holy Trinity in Saccargia

When we look at the Basilica of the Holy Trinity in Saccargia, we are surprised for a moment because the stunning facade is somewhat reminiscent of Santa Maria Novella: there are alternating white lines of limestone and black lines of basalt, which in contrast look green.

Located near Sassari, the church was built in the 1100s after a curious fact: Constantine of Torres, a politician, and his wife were hosted by local monks and asked to the Madonna of the church if they could have a child; when the child was born they had a church built there to fulfill the vow.

Inside in the apse there is a well-preserved fresco that recounts many sacred episodes with the vividness of a written text.
