GREAT NEWS – FREE VISIT OF THE TOWN HALL

If you happen to visit the fascinating city of Cagliari during your holidays, I strongly recommend a tour to the Town Hall of Cagliari. Besides the beauty of its architecture, inside you will find large decorated rooms with original and imposing furniture reminding of the past, as well as many art treasures such as works of Filippo Figari, John Marghinotti and Francesco Ciusa.

The building was built between 1899 and 1907 in Gothic Aragones style. You will notice the importance of floral designs which are typical of the Art Nouveau. Today the building is the municipal headquarters of the Sardinian capital.

The building is located on the port front (Via Roma) near the main station. Visits are possible each Saturday until the end of 2015, from 9:00 to 13:30 and from 14:00 – 19:00. Entrance is free and no appointment is needed. Definitely worth a visit!
