Church of Saint Francesco da Paola

The Church of Saint Francesco da Paola is also known by the name of San Francesco al Molo. Located along via Roma and in front of the port, it is officiated by the minimum friars who dedicated the title to the founder of the religious order since 1907. According to tradition, the saint performed a miracle freeing Cagliari from the terrible drought of 1739. The facade in style Classic dates back to 1932 and the lower part has a portico with three round arches. Inside stands a sumptuous late eighteenth century altar by the artist Giovanni Battista Spazzi.
