Bishop’s palace

Palazzo Vescovile (Bishop’s Palace) overlooks Piazza Municipio and is connected by a gallery to the Cathedral of Santa Chiara.

The first design for the episcopal palace was drawn up in 1763 by the Piedmontese military engineer Saverio Belgrano, among the first to spread in the island the architectural innovations with which the architects of the Savoia managed to give a more sober interpretation to the Baroque style.

Belgrano’s design was followed by three other projects.

When the church of Santa Chiara obtained Cathedral status in 1503, the palace became the Episcopal residence and the bishop moved to Iglesias.
