Little Barcelona

Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage.
Step out of the city life by going to La Pelosa Beach and Frecce delle Grotte di Antonio Piccinnu. Your inner history buff will appreciate Nuraghe Majori and Pozzo e Villaggio Nuragico S. Cristina. Explore Alghero's surroundings by going to S'Archittu (in Cuglieri), Basilica San Gavino (in Porto Torres) and Nuraghe Losa (in Abbasanta). There's lots more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, explore the historical opulence of Castello di Bosa, examine the collection at Museo etnografico Galluras , and do a tasting at Azienda Agricola Leda' d'Ittiri.
