Castello, a memorable past

The medieval quarter of Castello symbolises Cagliari. It represents the pulsating heart and memory of the town with its sturdy walls, still standing today, and the imposing Pisan towers of San Pancrazio and the Elephant. Together with its narrow streets, ancient noble palaces, workshops of antique dealers and craftsmen and the humble dwellings reminiscent of the medieval age.
A stroll through this quarter allows you to view a large number of monuments and museums including: the beautiful Viceroy’s Palace, The Lion’s Gate, the Neroman Saint Mary’s Cathedral dating back to the thirteenth century, the Saint Remy Ramparts, the National Museum of Archaeology, the National Art Gallery, the Museum Complex and the Centre for Art and Culture - Il Ghetto.
