The area east of Sassari in northern Sardinia has many Romanesque churches. During the period that these churches were built many people from Pisa and Genoa came to the island and they may have influenced the design of these churches.
The best example of Romanesque churches in the northern part of Sardinia is Santissima Trinita di Saccargia. Its striking facade is made of black and white stone and inside the apse are frescoes of Christ and saints.
These photos of Santissima Trinita and the nearby Romanesque Church of San Michele di Salvenero were submitted by Barbara Kossy, who leads Sardinia coast kayak trips. I've also added two Romanesque churches from southern Sardinia.
