Visit Iglesias - Church of Anime Purganti

Church of Anime Purganti

The sacred building was constructed in the second half of the 18 century, on the initiative of the  Confraternity of Souls, a sodality of Iglesias founded on 15 June, 1713 by Giuseppe Atzori, with the aim of providing free assistance to accompany the deceased brothers and offer liturgical services in suffrage of their souls.

The simple prospect of the building, decorated by a wide rose window, has got a flat roofing crowned by a sail-shaped bell tower, hosting a small bell adorned by four little angels among acanthus leaves. The inside consists of a simple hall, marked into bays by round arches.
