Alghero is a small town in Italy which lies in the north-western part of Sardinia, next to the Mediterranean Sea.
Alghero is one of the island’s most attractive towns and offers visitors a wealth of attractions.
Explore the ancient civilisations including the necropolis of Anghelu Ruju and the village of Palmavera. The Cave of Neptune is one of the most fascinating places to visit and it attracts over 150,000 people each year.
The old quarter of Alghero is named Barceloneta and was once ruled by the Spanish, whose influence is still in evidence. Explore the cobbled streets and enjoy some of the area’s best food in one of the many trattorias or pavement cafes.
San Giovanni beach is a favourite with the locals, and Bombarde Beach attracts the tourist crowd with a choice of beach bars with live music in summer.
Alghero Cathedral, built in Gothic style, is well worth a visit, and the marina is a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.
