Local Area Details

Alghero is situated on the north-west coast: it is surrounded by approx 10 miles of beaches and enjoys a mild climate for most part of the year. It is the most characteristic centre of the Riviera del Corallo with its shore abounding in lonely bays, in creeks hiding soft beaches surrounded with dense pine-woods, with indented cliffs washed by an emerald-green sea. The sea around Alghero dazzles you with its most extraordinary colours. Alghero is a an unspoiled oasis for underwater photography and archaeology. This wonderful town offers an exquisite example of art (Catalan-Gothic churches), history (town walls, towers and Aragonese style palaces), tradition (sacred performances, refined coral and filigree handycraft), culture (Catalan dialect is still widely spoken), cuisine (influences from several parts of the Mediterranean).

Neptune’s Grotto is a remarkable series of caves just outside Alghero, which can be seen on a 45-minute tour. Boats leave from the marina, and the hour-long journey takes in the dramatic coastline surrounding the limestone headland, Capo Caccia. You can also catch a bus to Capo Caccia and climb down the 654 steps to reach the caves below. A few miles outside Alghero is the Necropolis Anghelu Rùju, an ancient (3000 BC) burial ground. There are also Nuraghic sites, conical towers of vast stone, left by Sardinia’s Bronze Age civilisation. The best is Nuraghe di Palmavera (079 979 054), a Nuraghic complex. About 15 miles south of Alghero, along a spectacular, cliff-hugging road, is the medieval settlement of Bosa.

About Local Attrcations
Most of Alghero’s sights are in the lively citadel, where bars and restaurants spill out on to the car-free streets. Seven defensive towers divide the old and new towns; the 14th-century Porta Terra is a good starting point. The key building, though, is the Catalan-Gothic Cathedral (piazza Duomo), at the junction of via Roma and via Umberto. Nearby, in similar style, is the 16th-century Palazzo Albis (piazza Civica), once home to Alghero’s governors. The restored 14th-century Chiesa di San Francesco (via Carlo Alberto) is the city’s most enchanting church.
About Local Restaurants
Fresh fish and seafood dominate the menu, but locally produced salami and pecorino (sheep’s cheese) are also widely available, and malloreddus (Sardinian pasta) with sausage and tomato sauce is a standard local dish. Culinary Catalan touches include paella and crema catalana. Alghero has its own wines and Anghelu Rùju, a delicious port. The citadel has plenty of restaurants. For typical Sardinian food, Osteria Taverna Paradiso (via Principe Umberto 29, 079 978001) boasts a fine selection of local cheeses. Il Pavone (Piazza Sulis 3, 079 979 584) has an innovative menu, including a superb squid-ink pasta. For pizza by the metre, Poco Loco (via Gramsci 9, 079 973 1034) has ten-pin bowling and live music on Friday nights. Agriturismo Sa Mandra (Strada Aeroporto Civile, 079 999 150), north of the centre, near the airport, serves up a traditional Sardinian meat feast, a set menu of antipasti, suckling pig, lamb or boar; book well in advance.
