The Sardinia region
For holidays, much of Sardinia's appeal lies in its beaches and landscapes, with its miles of coastline dotted with sand dunes and juniper woods. Inland the terrain is rugged, and sheep outnumber people. The island feels very different to the mainland, with different dishes and architecture. The Emerald Coast is the main resort – with its picturesque pink buildings and beautiful coastline.
Sardinia is an island in which you can find the right place for the summer holidays in Europe. White sand beaches, the sea with the colours of the Caribbean one, the history, the cuisine, the traditions and many other things. 3,5 hours of flight from Stockolm, 2,5 hours from London, 1,5 hours from Frankfurt. No jet lag problems for reaching a complete different reality in the south of Europe.
The particular feature of Alghero is that in the past this town was a colony of Spain where the prisoners of Catalunya were moved. The ancient walls on the sea, the typical streets that have still the name in Catalan language, the Neptunus Caves, the Natural Park of Porto Conte with its wild animals, the white sand beaches, the typical cuisine and so on...Alghero gets its name from the abundance of seaweed (alghe) in its surrounding waters. It was known as Algarium in the Middle Ages and Al Alguer and Barcelloneta under Spanish rule.
Alghero 's origins date back to the X Century when the Genoese, with the help of Pisans, turned the Arabs away and obtained land grants from the Judges of Logudoro, one of the groups of judges that governed Sardinia during the Middle Ages. The Genoese House of Doria took possession of the city at the beginning of the XII Century and held onto it until 1353 when the Catalan fleet defeated Genoa's ships near Porto Conte on the outskirts of Alghero. The Algherese revolted against the garrison's commanding officer, killing him. The Spanish responded by sending 12,000 men and 100 galleys to suppress the revolt. A treaty was signed and the original inhabitants were forced to abandon their homes and allow the town to be settled by Catalan families. Later, when Charles V wished to use the city as an operations base against Saracen pirates, he visited Alghero and was so warmly received by its people that he proclaimed them todos caballeros, a mark of distinction held still held in regard today by the Algherese. In 1713, when Alghero came under Austrian rule with the Treaty of Utrecht, Spain tried once again to take the city over but was obligated by the Treaty of London to yield Sardinia to the House of Savoy. Alghero was not again greatly disturbed by foreign influences until it suffered bombings during World War II. Fearing an invasion by the Allied forces, the Sardinians built bunkers in strategic locations around the city that still stand today as grim reminders of Alghero 's more troubled times.
The old city is closed behind thick fortress walls, interrupted only by solemn towers. The old city's stone streets, narrow and bordered by shops, are dotted with randomly spaced and seemingly unplanned tiny piazzas (squares). The polychrome dome of the church of San Michele and the church of St. Francis' pointed Aragonese tower dominate the city.
The monuments represent the gothic-Catalan style.
Sightseeing begins at Porta a Terra Square, on the eastern margin of the old town that extends into the vast green area of the public gardens where Giuseppe Manno's statue, a historian from Alghero, can be seen. The monument was made in 1894 by Pietra Canonica.
San Francesco street includes the town's principal meeting place Sulis square where the view of the sea is interrupted by the impressive Espero Reial and Sulis towers.Along the seaside and at the end of Colombo Way is the recently restored San Giacomo Tower (San Jaume) next to the church of Our Lady of Carmelo from the XVI Century.
The promenade Marco Polo extends past the bastion of San Giacomo, characteristic for its narrow openings from which canons were once fired. The seaside opens onto the beautiful panorama of the Algherese roads and the promontory that separates the city from the Porto Conte inlet. Its headland is called Capo Caccia.
The small tower of Polveriera (or St. Barbara) is past the bastion, where the coast reaches the north-west end of the promontory and the old city is situated. The coast then turns east, nearing the upper part of the tower of St. Elmo. From here it's possible to see the pier, the port and the landscape far to the north including the long beach of San Giovanni, the small island of Maddalena, Calic marsh and the colourful mountains of Nurra.
Continuing along Magellano Way and the seaside, you will find the narrow wall passage with a series of arches that seem to close in around the city's antique dock.
Continuing on, between the coastline and curved walls, you'll reach the summit in front of the doors that once opened to the sea. This is one of the historic accesses to the fortified city. Nearby there are the impressive ruins of the Maddalena Fort where Giuseppe Garibaldi disembarked the 14th of August 1855 as captain of the cargo ship "Il Lombardo".
Entering the old city, the visit starts in Piazza Civica (historically "placa de la Dressana"). Here medieval arches lean against the walls of Count Serra di Sant'Elia's Palace, the House of Savoy's Master of Ceremonies and the deconsecrated church of Rosario from the XVII Century.

The apartments were perfect for a holiday to Alghero. We were 2 adults, but there is space for 6-9 persons (for the same price)!!!. They were comfortable, clean and had 2 balconies,
Air-conditioned, clean, modern. No extra cost -cleaning, deposit.
The owner Fabio (very nice man) spoke very good English and was extremely helpful. The beach was a 10 minute walk away.
Very good place, highly recommended!
