Church of San Mauro

The church of San Mauro is located in the perfect center of Sardinia, in Sorgono among the Gennargentu mountains. Perhaps it is no accident that it has this location because it tells the Sardinian past like few others on the island. In fact, the church blends several styles: the Gothic, which recalls Aragonese rule on the island; the Renaissance (it was built in 1600). The Baroque typical of southern Italy can be seen in the magnificent rose window on the facade, the largest in Sardinia, which has columns with capitals as spokes that sustain its structure in a singular combination.

Around the church then echoes the Nuragic era of Sardinia, in fact nearby is the archaeological area of Biru 'e Concas, which houses the largest number of Menhirs in the Mediterranean.
