Also Marina District, one of the four historical quarters in Cagliari, is certainly worth a visit.
Not far from Castello, this quarter was founded by the people from Pisa in the 13th century and in the past it was the living place of men who worked in the port nearby.
In the past this district was called Lapola or la Pola, meaning a specific area of the port, and it was surrounded by walls that were demolished in the second half of the 19th century. Nowadays it is one of the busiest and liveliest quarters in the city and both people from Cagliari and tourists really love it.
According to some present architectonic evidences, Marina was still inhabited in the Roman period. Near the Church of St. Eulaia you can see some parts o fan ancient road and some ruins of old buildings.
There are many monuments you shouldn’t miss, such as St. Eulaia’s Church, St. Augustine’s Church, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and its crypt, the former Church of St. Teresa, now turned into the City Concert Hall, Via Roma and the Museo del Tesoro.
