The Sardinia region
Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia with its approx. 1.800 kilometres of coastline, is one of the most popular destinations for people who love aquatic sports and seaside holidays, not only for its natural beauty and geographical position but also for its history.
The many waves of invaders who plundered and settled in Sardinia during the thousands of years of Sardinian history, came from the sea.
For this reason the Sardinians, until recently, have never loved the sea and they built very few villages along the coast. The most important villages were built during the period of the Roman domination and before that under the Phoenician-Punic domination. Some examples are: Karalis (Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia), Nora, Tharros, Olbia and Turris Libissonis (Porto Torres) on the Northern coast of Sardinia.
The sea around this large Mediterranean Island (second only to Sicily in size among all Mediterranean Islands) is among the most beautiful and transparent in all the world. In fact D.H. Lawrence in his famous book 'The Sea and Sardinia' wrote that Sardinia was a land like no other and the Sardinian writer, Marcello Serra entitled one of his famous books "Sardinia: Almost a Continent", in order to underline the uniqueness of the Sardinian landscapes and the large and deep differences among the Island's various regions which make Sardinia similar to a continent
The north-west Sardinian town of Alghero is a lively and pretty city. Thanks to flights connections, now Alghero is directly linked to main Italian and European cities like Pisa, Milan, Rome, London, Barcellona and Frankfurt.
Alghero is indeed a unique gem in Sardinia and Italy itself. The city origin and current zest is Catalan, Genoese and Sardinian.
Followed the overthrow of the Genoese Dorias family (originators of the city in 1102) by the Aragon in 1354, the city is a unique mixture of Mediterranean cultures. Thanks to that, the old town is showing strong traces of the Spaniard culture being the local dialect, the Algherese, close to Catalan. Its atmospheric narrow streets named both in Catalan and Italian, and bright churches, bring a colourful light to the city together with antique houses with fashion iron made balconies, bakeries and fashion shops, all shaped in strong and bright stones.
Alghero is undoubtedly a unique Mediterranean and Medieval citadel, with that special futures of being a coastal Coral Riviera as in its seabed can be found one of the richest coral fauna of the world, and shops, bars, and restaurants are a constant reminder of this special gemstone being all decorated with this characteristic red, pink, and blue-sky jewel.
Several towers divided the old from the new town. The main city sightseeing are Porta Terra, one of these massive towers also known as the Jewish Tower as it was created by a Jewish community in 1492, the magnificent Catalan-Gothic Cathedral of Piazza del Duomo one of the finest Mediterranean architectures, the nearby 16th century Governor's house Palazzo Abis, the charming 14th century Church of San Francesco, the austere Palau Reial, and of course the sandy beaches and the long pine tree marina surrounded with bars, restaurants, disco-clubs, campsites and resorts offering diving course and excursions.
