Cagliari – Quartiere San Benedetto – architecture around Piazza della Republica

Posted in Cagliari, Italy, Piazza della Republica, San Benedetto, Sardinia with tags on March 4, 2016 by gannet39

Quartiere San Benedetto is the more modern area to the east of Quartiere Marina. Some of the buildings around here date from the 1930s.

I especially love this art deco apartment block on the west side of Piazza Republica.

On the other side of Piazza Republica is the Palace of Justice, an intimidating neo-classical monster built during the fascist dictatorship.

This brutalist war memorial is a few streets away. I’m guessing it also dates from Mussolini’s time.

This impressive building with art nouveau statues is also nearby.

And this lovely flower-covered palm tree is on Via Mancini.
