The cathedral is situated near Piazza Civica in the medieval town of Alghero, this Church is big and built by the Catalans.

I found it not very inspiring or remarkable. But it takes only a minute to look in. Not a memorable visit.

Not quite sure what other reviewers had been drinking before reviewing but this is a dark austere building inside, the cathedral in Cagliari is much more inspiring.
