Cagliari: Basilica of Bonaria / Basilica di Bonaria

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Basilica has a limestone façade with large porch, above which, in the nave, there is a triangular pediment that contains the emblem of the Order of Mercy and, lower down, surmounted by a triangular pediment and flanked by other classical columns, opens the Benediction Loggia.

In the hall, on the left, there is a sculpture of prof. Enrico Manfrini of Milan, offered by the comm. Orlando Onorato, portraying Pope Paolo VI, who visited the sanctuary of Bonaria in 1970. The bronze doors of the contemporary era, were made by Ernesto Lamagna


La Basilica ha una facciata in calcare con ampio porticato, sopra il quale, in corrispondenza della navata centrale, vi è un timpano triangolare che racchiude lo stemma dell'Ordine della Mercede e, più in basso, sovrastata da un altro timpano triangolare e inquadrata da colonnine classicheggianti, si apre la Loggia delle Benedizioni. Nell'atrio, sulla sinistra, si trova una scultura del prof. Enrico Manfrini di Milano, offerta dal comm. Orlando Onorato, raffigurante il papa Paolo VI, che visitò il santuario di Bonaria nel 1970. I portali in bronzo, di epoca contemporanea, sono stati realizzati da Ernesto Lamagna.

Contrast is exaggerated, the facade is a bit overexposed and the trees almost black. I can't say I fully appreciate the result.

Ciao, Nick
