about San Saturnino Basilica
San Saturnino Basilica (Basilica di San Saturnino) is one of Sardinia’s oldest churches. San Saturnino Basilica was definitely in existence by the sixth century and perhaps even as early as the fourth. In fact, the namesake of San Saturnino Basilica is said to have been executed and maybe also buried here during the reign of Roman Emperor Diocletian.
Built in the shape of a cross, the current structure of San Saturnino Basilica was consecrated in the twelfth century and has a Roman necropolis, dating back to the early Christian era.
