The Church of Santissima Trinità di Saccargia (Holy Trinity Basilica of Saccargia) is among the best known Romanesque churches in Sardinia. Built during the 12th century, the basilica was part of a vast Benedictine Camaldolese monastic complex. Characterised externally by a two-tone black and white colour scheme, of Tuscan derivation, internally it is more sober, embellished by a valuable medieval fresco.
