Overview

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 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.

Overall Guide : 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... more 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. 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.

Overall Guide : 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... more 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 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.
