Besides the panorama of the coast, the city is famous for the ancient basilica, Sant’Elena Imperatrice, which houses beautiful religious items and frescos that are brought out during a procession each year. The town is a rural one, even now, so its quaint country buildings and traditions give you a true sense of its deep Italian heritage.
Although it may seem rustic, the cuisine of Sardinia still reigns. Visit from June to October for the sunnier months, although it may be busier, and stay to try what the region is famous for - wine, bread, and cakes. Quartu Sant’Elena itself is enough to make your mouth water.
