Chiesa di Sant'Antonio da Padova - Santuario di Sant'Ignazio da Laconi

Known as the Church of St. Ignatius, it is located in the historic Stampace district in central Cagliari, where many Punic and Roman remains can be seen. The church was built in the 1500s but was consecrated in 1800 to St. Ignatius, who has become a mythical figure because he lived in the Sardinian capital for nearly 40 years in poverty while continuing to help his fellow citizens. There is also a procession dedicated to him at the end of August: if you go there, it will be an opportunity to see the city from another point of view.  

The saint's fame contrasts with the very severe facade of the church, in which there are 3 doors surmounted by mosaic-decorated arches: the style is Romanesque-Byzantine.
