Nostra Signora di Castro – Oschiri, Sardinia, Italy

Nostra Signora di Castro, is a Romanesque Catholic church located in a rural location in the territory of the municipality of Oschiri in the Province of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy.

The church is the ancient cathedral of the diocese of Castro, which was suppressed in the 15th century after more than four centuries of existence.

The area where the former cathedral stands, on the site of the ancient bishop’s citadel of Castro, is enclosed by an enclosure, consisting of the cumbessias, or rustic pilgrim lodgings typical of the rural sanctuaries of Sardinia.

The church, an annual pilgrimage destination for the inhabitants of Oschiri, is also taken up in the municipality’s official coat of arms.
