An Aragonese chapel in the Cathedral of Santa Maria di Castello, Piazza Palazzo
Santa Maria di Castello, founded in the 13th century in the Pisan district, became a cathedral in 1258, with the collapse of the Giudicato of Cagliari. In the Pisan chapel, dating back to the first few years of the 14th century, you will notice Gothic architectural elements: the tall slender shape, underlined by the cross vault supported by thin suspended columns, and the mullioned window with a lobed arch. A style that also returns in the Aragonese chapel, after 1326, that marks the moment in which the town fell under Aragonese rule. The chapel is in a specular position to the Pisan chapel, on the right of the altar.
