Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Chiesa del Carmine)

  via del Carmine     more than a year ago

Probably the best example of Rococo architecture that Sardinia has to offer, the church and monastery of Our Lady of Mount Carmel was built between 1776 and 1785. The design is attributed to Piedmontese architect Giuseppe Viana and centres itself around a beautiful quadrangular cloister. In 1782 it became a monastery for the Carmelite friars and remained thus until it was suppressed in 1866 during the confiscation of ecclesiastic goods and property by the Reign of Savoy. It has since had various uses, including housing the local Carabinieri, and now belongs to the city council.
