One of the finest examples of Gothic architecture that still exists in Alghero is Chiesa di San Francesco. Originally built in Catalan Gothic design during 14th century, it was later renovated with Renaissance influence after it collapsed in 1593. The buttery sandstone used in building the church, the hexagonal barrel on the square base with a spire on the top adds up to the beautification of the church.
Step inside to see the 18th century polychrome marble alter and 17th century old wooden sculpture. The interior design follows Baroque style. The cloister with 22 columns connected like a round arch is a must-watch feature of the church.
