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.

Sardinias 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 Sardinias 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, sheeps 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.

A new GOLF CLUB is situated 15 minutes from Alghero: see website http://www.algherogolf.it/default.asp?l=it





Alghero

The area of today's Alghero was settled since pre-historical times. The so-called Ozieri culture was present here in the 4th millennium BCE while the nuraghe civilization was present from around 1500 BC for, and traces of Phoenician buildings have been found not far from the city.

Due to his strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea Alghero was born around a fortified port, founded around 1102 by the Genoese Doria family. The Doria ruled it for centuries, apart from a brief period under the rule of Pisa (1283-1284). In 1353 it was captured by the Aragonese under Bernardo de Cabrera, and could later grow thanks to the arrival of Catalan colonists: in the early 16th century Alghero received the status of King's City (ciutat de l'Alguer) and developed economically.

The Catalano-Aragonese were followed by Habsburg Spain, whose dominion, ended in 1702, brought some decadence to the city. In 1720 Alghero and Sardinia were handed over to the Piedmont based House of Savoy. Around 1750 a wide channel was excavated to improve the defensive stand of the peninsula. In 1821 famine led to a revolt of the population, which was bloodily suppressed. At the end of the same century Alghero was de-militarized and, during the Fascist era, part of the surrounding marshes was reclaimed and the suburbs of Fertilia and S.M. La Palma were founded, although the presence of malaria in the countryside could be overcome only in the 1950s. During World War II (1943) Alghero was bombed, its historical centre suffering heavy damage.

After the end of the war Alghero became a popular tourist resort.

Language
A minority of people in Alghero speak a Catalan dialect, introduced when Catalan invaders repopulated the town after expelling the autochthonous Sardinian population in 1372. Catalan was replaced as the official language by Spanish in the seventeenth century, then by Italian. The most recent linguistic research conducted showed that 22.4% of the population speak Algherese Catalan as a first language and around 90% have some understanding of the language.

Currently, there has been a revival of the arts in Algherese Catalan, with such notable singers as Franca Masu performing original compositions in the local dialect.

Main sights
Palazzo Carcassona.
Alghero Cathedral (Cattedrale di Santa Maria Immacolata di Alghero). Begun in 1570, it was opened in 1593 but finished and consecrated only in 1730. The church original was in Catalan-Gothic style, as it can be seen in the five chapels of the presbytery, which 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 Neo-Classical narthex was added to the façade, changing abruptly its appearance.
The church of St. 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 St. Michael.
The Madonna del Santo Rosario.
The Torre del Portal, built at the expense of the Jewish community of Alghero in 1360, and the Tower dell'Esperò Reial (16th century).
Palazzo D'Albis (16th century), a typical example of Catalan-Aragonese architecture of the 16th century. In the October 1541 it housed the Emperor Charles V.
Neptune's Grotto
Porto Conte
Capo Caccia
The area north-west os Alghero bay with Porto Conte and the relatives Punta Giglio and Capo Caccia limestone promontory offer several fields of study and activities, from geology to biology studies and researches, to sport and adventures like caving scuba diving and cave-diving, trekking and climbing. There are more than 300 discovered caves upon and under water and semisubmerged. Neptune's Grotto is the most famous and visited, thanks to the accessibility and connection by ferries and stepped path from land. Under water the Nereo Cave, considered the biggest and spectacular marine underwater cave of whole Mediterranean sea and Europe is the most visited by scuba-divers.

Some 100 Nuraghe remains 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.

“great location, nice apartment”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

Ideal spot for families. located beside play ground, grocery shops etc. Only 5 minutes walk from the center of town and 10 minutes from bus terminal. Apartment is well furnished. Kitchen / dining room / lounge has all the necessary equipment. Apartment very clean. Bedroom spacious. Ideal for a couple with two kids. Gordon the agent for the property was helpful. While a car is needed from this location, parking would be available on the streets.

“A elegant, stylish, well-furnished, well-located property with great care taken by the owner .”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2012

This was a beutiful modern apartment. I really loved it. It was so near everything. it was very well equipped to allow us to stay in and eat the nights we decided to. The aparment was very clean, very well designed and furnished. I really enjoyed staying here. i couldn't figure out how the TV worked and WiFi would really be the icing on the cake to make it perfect. Gordon, who met us to give us the keys, was wonderful, very helpful and gave us some great tips and guidance on getting around Alghero. He was very kind and courteous and ensured we had all we needed from Day 1. A big plus when you don't know a town. Thank you Marco and Gordon for making our stay in Alghero so positive. I would definitely stay at this apartment again! :-)

“Great apartment, convenient and good value”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2012

Stayed in this apartment for one week in September. We were met by a man called Gordon (we texted him on our way and he met us on arrival) who was an English speaker and gave some very useful ideas on food and shopping near the apartment. It's a 5-10 min walk into the main part of Alghero and the location was perfect for us. Kitchen was well-equipped and crucially has a dishwasher (Why don't all apartments have these as standard??) We didn't use the washing machine so cant comment on that. Beds and bathroom were fine and comfortable. Large supermarket a few minutes away was great. The nearby Latterna restaurant recommended by Gordon was the best value food of the holiday! The bathroom could be a little better and cleaner and If it had wi-fi access it would be perfect but for the price, good value overall.

“Great appartment”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2012

We've been for 4 days in October 2011 - everything was great! Although parking space is limited, we found one every night! The beach northern of Alghero is really amazing, totally white and powder sand! For dinner we just walked 5 min to the centre of Alghero, the appartment is located pretty good. We felt very comfortable with the appartment and could recommend it for a holiday or just a trip for few days.
