Church of San Michele

The Catalan past of Alghero, which is a port in northern Sardinia, shows its splendor through the Church of San Michele. Built in the Baroque style in the 1600s, its dome during the last century was covered with a striking polychrome tile design. The clear Gothic influences and modernist style are reminiscent of Gaudi's backward path of inspiration for the famous Sagrada Familia.

On the Altar there is a wooden statue of the Archangel Michael defeating Satan, chained at his feet. In the left arm of the interior there is a chapel dedicated to St. Ignatius of Loyola, a member of the Jesuits: he was entrusted with the custody of the church.
