The Sardinia region

Bosa is one of Sardinia’s most attractive towns. Seen from a distance, its rainbow townscape resembles a vibrant Paul Klee canvas, with pastel houses stacked on a steep hillside, tapering up to a stark, grey castle. In front, moored fishing boats bob on a glassy river and palm trees line the elegant riverfront.

Bosa was established by the Phoenicians and thrived under the Romans. During the early Middle Ages it suffered repeat raids by Arab pirates, but in the early 12th century the Malaspina family (a branch of the Tuscan clan of the same name) moved in and built their huge castle. In the 19th century, the Savoys established lucrative tanneries here, but these have since fallen by the wayside. Unspoilt sandy & rocky beaches close by.

Bosa

The charming Centro Storico (old Town) is the perfect location set into the hillside with cobbled streets leading down into town. The Castello Malaspina (Castle) is situated at the top of the hill steeped in history and Commanding huge panoramic views, the hilltop castle was built in 1112 by the Tuscan Malaspina family. Little remains of the original structure except for the skeleton – imposing walls and a series of tough brick towers – and, inside, a humble 4th-century chapel, the Chiesa di Nostra Signora di Regnos Altos. This houses an extraordinary 14th-century fresco cycle depicting saints, ranging from a giant St Christopher to St Lawrence in the middle of his martyrdom on the grill. A few minutes walk into town where you will find the Cattedrale dell’Immacolata, Bosa's Cathedral dates to the early 19th century when it was buillt over an earlier Romanesque church. A rare, if not overly riveting example of rococo (officially called Piedmontese baroque), it boasts an imposing marble altar and several frescoes by the 19th-century artist Emilio Scherer. The Town also boasts a fabulous museum On the south bank of the river, it occupies the Town's former Tanneries which were still in business until after WWII. On the ground floor you can see the original stone tanks where the leather hides were washed; upstairs, explanatory panels and a small collection of photos and old tools illustrate the whole tanning process. The museo casa Deriou , Housed in an elegant 19th-century townhouse, Bosa's main museum showcases local arts and artisanal crafts. Each of the three floors has a different theme relating to the city and its past: the 1st floor hosts temporary exhibitions and displays of traditional hand embroidery; the 2nd floor displays the palazzo's original 19th-century decor and furnishings; and the top floor is dedicated to Melkiorre Melis (1889–1982), a local painter and one of Sardinia’s most important modern artists. You will discover many shops selling locally made produce, restaurants serving delisious Sardinian cuisine, bars & Vinerys where the local award winning Malvasia Di Bosa can be samled and purchased if desired.
