A perfect holiday next to the Mediterranean Sea: Alghero. I found this place to be very historic because of the ancient architecture. The buildings looked pretty pre historic. While taking a walk in town I found a lot of people in colourful clothes since it was summer and I saw them going towards the beach. I saw many restaurants serving delicious cuisines. The main attraction for the visitors here are the beaches with white sand and a perfect weather for sun bath. I saw few of them enjoying the water sports. Though this place had a historic touch, however it looked like a more fun loving ... More destination for me. The residents here rely more on the tourist since it is the only way of income to them. I visited many churches which reminded me of the ancient times, they were well maintained and kept in the same way without making any kind of changes except for repairing. I was surprised to see an underwater cave which is one of the most popular place to visit.

Neptune’s Grotto is the most visited site in this area. They are a series of caves that can be accessed by a boat from the marina or by steps from the cape. Numerous stalactites and stalagmites can be found in these caves.
Several remains of ‘nuraghe’, huge cone-shaped towers made from big blocks of stone, are scattered across this region. Nuraghe di Palmavera is the most well-preserved of them. Necropolis Anghelu Rùju, the remains of a 5000-year-old burial ground, is also found here. The Chiesa di San Francesco is the town’s most beautiful church.
... More /> Bosa, a flourishing settlement in the medieval period, is especially famous for the remains of the fortified Malaspina castle from the Middle Ages.
Alghero is famous for its coral jewellery and carvings; these are made from the corals which are extracted from the surrounding waters by divers.

Alghero is situated in Sardinia, an island off the west coast of Italy. Alghero is not as commercially exploited as other Italian towns and thus retains a lot of its Old World charm and authenticity.
The climate in Alghero is the Mediterranean type. Summers can get very hot with temperatures in August touching 30°C. Winters are mild, but Alghero sees a fair bit of rainfall as it is along the coast.
Alghero prospered after the medieval period due to the king’s patronage; natural calamities and war, over the years, pulled it back for a while. Today, this town of ... More approximately 40,000 inhabitants is a quite seaside resort.
While the modern part of the town thrives on coral jewellery and the few tourists; in the old fortifications, one can still find herdsmen tending to their sheep.
