Cathedral of St. Clare

The Cathedral of St. Clare, built in 1200, is the only church in the world named after the saint from Assisi. It fills with beauty the square of Iglesias, a small town in southern Sardinia that tells of the traces of different cultures, from Byzantine to Aragonese.

The church's unique facade is divided into two different styles: above Gothic with a rose window and two side arches, supporting many other small arches; below Romanesque, with a round arch surmounting a lintel doorway.

With your imagination the bell tower appears to be covered with a series of pixels that make it look like an enlarged picture in motion: this gives the facade a lively and colorful appearance.
