An ancient Catalan burg on the sea, an infinite variety of colours and landscapes, sun and year-round mild temperatures, stories and legends of ancient civilizations, the sound of the ancient Catalan tongue, the allure of sailing, the adventure of extreme sports and much more….hiking, trail cycling, the traditions and flavours of yore mixed together with the tastes of today. And then there’s the sea: the very soul of the city.
Alghero extends its welcome from the north-western corner of the ancient land of Sardinia. When you walk through Alghero, on its centuries old walls, among its distinctive narrow cobble-stone alleyways, you notice the particular allure that only a seaside city can have. A sea that is always there in the landscape and always at hand, a tourist port where next to large yachts can be seen the colours of the typical fishing boats for local fish; and among the shapes and colours of history, there is an of the infinite variety of places where you can relax and have a restorative break.
