About this location
The Sardinia region
Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean, is located approximately 100 miles from the Italian mainland and an almost identical distance from the coast of North Africa. Because of this location in the centre of the Mediterranean trade routes, it was invaded and colonized by a succession of powers. Greeks, Romans and Phoenicians came early on, and traces of their civilizations can be found in ruins of Carthaginian colonies at Nora, the Phoenician temple at Tharos near Oristano, and in the remains of Roman villages strung along the coast. Vandals, Byzantines and Arabs looted and destroyed the colonies, while in the middle ages the maritime republics of Pisa and Genoa battled for supremacy, followed by the Spanish and the Austrians. Today the towers and ramparts of the Genovese and Spanish, the elegant Romanesque churches of the Pisans as well as impressive examples of Gothic and Baroque architecture remain.
Sardinia's first inhabitants were the Nuraghic people, thought to have arrived from the eastern Mediterranean around 2000 BC. Traces of their civilization are visible throughout the island: thousands of nuraghi, mysterious conical shaped houses and fortresses that are unique to Sardinia. Built of huge stones joined without mortar, some are like medieval castles, with a tall central tower and two or three rings of defensive walls. Su Nuraxi, just outside the town of Barumini and dating from 1500 BC, is the oldest as well as the largest complex, most likely a palace or even the capital. Thought to have been covered with earth by Sards and Carthaginians at the time of the Roman conquest, it was not discover-ed until 1949 and remains in an excellent state of preservation. Bronze statuettes and domestic objects left by this civilization can be seen at the museum in Cagliari.
A mountainous island with hills and narrow highlands, Sardinia has a spectacular jagged coastline, interspersed with pristine beaches of fine sand, rocky inlets and secluded coves ideal for snorkeling. The world famous Costa Smeralda is the major resort area, while the lovely beaches near Alghero, with its Spanish ambience, attract visitors as well. Throughout Sardinia's history of upheaval, the islanders retreated to the inland mountains, where many of them remain today, raising sheep and growing grapes on terraced mountain terrain. Here Sardinian folk culture is expressed in dance, handicrafts and native dress.
Sheepherding and fishing have always been central to the economy of Sardinia, so many of the specialties feature lamb, sheep's cheese, and fish. Bottarga, pressed mullet roe, is sliced paper thin and drizzled with Sardinian olive oil as an antipasto, or tossed onto malloreddus, tiny ridged dumplings, as a first course. Typical breads include the thin and crispy pane carasau and carta da musica, which become pane frattau when combined with eggs and tomatoes. Soups are hearty: zuppa cuatta, made with lamb and Pecorino cheese and baked, is a perfect example. Cagliari is famous for its burrida, fish poached in an aromatic broth with onion, carrot, celery, parsley, and lemon, then served with a flavorful garlic sauce stretched with mild vinegar and thickened with crushed pine nuts or walnuts. Meat is typically roasted, often on aromatic wood; the spit-roasted suckling pig is outstanding, as is trattaglia arrustica, lamb liver grilled on wild olive branches. Desserts include pabassine, a pastry rich with dried fruit and redolent with orange, and sebadas, large round ravioli that are filled with Pecorino and grated lemon or orange zest, then fried and drizzled with warm slightly bitter honey from strawberry plants. Do try a glass of liquore su mirtu, a myrtle liquor, after dinner, and Vermentino di Sardegna, Torbato, Nuragus, Connonau, Monica, or Anghelu Ruju with dinner.
lghero is situated on the north-west coast of Sardinia. It 's historic centre, the fortfied town, rises up in a little peninsula, the tongue of gentle planes,but surrounded by the dry relief of the cost to the towards Bosa,and to the north towards Capo Caccia.
The historic centre is surrounded by on three sides.Originally,it was entirely enveloped by a walled belt, with bastions facing the seafront.In the 1800s, the walls on the land side were knocked down,leaving only the towers standing. It is easy,In any case,to see where the historic centre ends,with its cobbled or stone slabbed streets and ancient building:
THE CATHEDRAL OF SANT MARIA , begun in 1570,it was opened in 1593 but finisched and consacrated only 1730.The church original was in Catalan-Gothic style,as it can be seen in the five chapels of the presbytery, wich also include the base of the bell tower.The nave and the two aisles are instead in late Renaissance Style. In the 20th century a New-Classical narthex was added to the facade,changing abruptly its appearence.
THE CHURCH OF SANT FRANCIS(1360,rebuilt in the late 16th century) original Catalan Gothic parts can be seen over the high altar, the presbytery chapels and the san Sacramento chapel.
The bell tower is from the first half of the 16th century.
THE CHURCH OF SAINT MICHAEL.
THE TOWER OF PORTAL(16th century)
PALAZZO D'ALBIS (16th century)
THE CHURCH OF SANT MICHAEL.
Some 100 Nuraghes remain can be seen in the neighbouring areas of Sant'Imbenia(including also a Phoenician necropolis and roman remains near the airport of Alghero),Palmavera,and Anghelu Ruju.
A minority of people in Alghero speak a Catalan dialect ,introduced when Catalan invaders repopulated the town after expelling the autochthonous Sardianian population in 1372.
Catalan was replaced as the officinal language by Spanisch in the 17th century,then by italian.
