The Sardinia region
The ties between Alghero and what is considered to be the mother-country, Barcelona, are very strong even today. The catalan language is still spoken and can be read on street names, heard in popular songs and used in religious ceremonies.Numerous archeological discoveries in the region testify the presence of man from the Neolithic Age (6000-5000 B.C.);the over one hundred "Nuraghi" found throughout the territory are proof of settlements from the Nuragic Age. Other Nuragic, Phoenician, Punic and Roman remains are located in the area.
The "Italian-Catalan town" or "Barceloneta of Sardinya" , according to some historians dates back to the year 1102 others believe it was founded in the second half of the XIII century by the Doria , a powerful family from Genoa.
The strategic position , the fortified ramparts and towers made the town a stronghold that was the ambition of the Catalans who conquered and repopulated the town. Alghero became an important regular trading port on the routes to Cagliari and Sicily.
Alghero Town Centre
The town is rich in art and history. In the Old town, inside the walled city ,you can visit the Cathedral ,The churches of San Francesco, Misericordia , and San Michele ,Patron Saint of Alghero.On The Bastioni or ramparts around the city overlooking the sea, you can visit the towers of Sulis, Sant Jaume and Porta Terra.
There are many beaches to choose from around Alghero, Lido, Le Bombarde, Lazzaretto,Pineta Mugoni, Porticciolo and Porto Ferro just to name some . You will notice the magnificent contrast between land and sea and the amazing emerald and turquoise clear waters around the region.
Under Capo Caccia, a limestone headland ranging from 170m at the cape to 300 m at P.Cristallo, you will find the Neptune cave. You can reach the grotto from Alghero harbour by boat or from the summit of Capo Caccia by a stairway of 656 steps called the Escala del Cabirol which was built in the year 1954 and descends the spectacular sheer cliff face to the entrance of the cave.
There are two important Nuragic sites near Alghero,you will find the Nuraghe di Palmavera on the road to Porto Conte and the Necropolis of Anghelu Ruiu on the Road to Porto Torres. Both sites date back to the nuragic and prenuragic eras and offer an interesting contrast to the magnificent beaches and coves around the region.
Tradition can be seen in the works of art that the Coral Jewellers design, the filigree handicrafts and in other local goods made from cork ,straw and ceramics. Traditional costumes are often worn for local festivities in most parts of the island.

"The best feature is its proximity to the old walled city of Alghero"
The flat is very small and basic but is fine if you intend to use it as a base for exploring the town and surrounding area. Its best feature is that you can walk to the old walled city in 2/3 minutes … More
