Nostra Signora di Bonaria is a modern parish church at Via Nostra Signora di Bonaria, at the western end of Lido di Ostia and in a rather bleak and ugly suburban area.

It was designed by the Berarducci, Monaco and Rinaldi partnership and built in 1982. At first glance it looks nothing like a church, being a low white building with small rectangular windows and looking rather like an upmarket set of low-rise apartments. However, the flat roof slopes from one end to the other on the side facing the road (which is the long side of the rectangular plan), and there is a campanile formed of two tall, thin concrete slabs connected by struts and protruding from the roof. The entrance is on the north side, through a garden which is a little oasis for the area.

Our Lady of Bonaria is the patroness of Sardinia, and her shrine is in the capital of Cagliari.
