Routes and travel ideas
Alghero is a small and precious jewel, a territory that opens up to visitors with discretion and reserve and, for this reason, even more surprising for the atmosphere of authentic
and noble beauty and its ancient quiet. You are in Sardinia, a rough and shining island, a treasure trove of pride and authenticity.
Those who arrive in Alghero will experience the thrill of encountering history. Enclosed by an ancient wall, the historic centre of the city offers visitors the charm of its
cobbled streets, alleys and streets that evoke mediaeval life and traditions. Dominated by the Spaniards for centuries, the city, known as “little Barcelona” officially speaks
a second language: Catalan. The visit to Alghero begins with entering the Gothic cathedral of Santa Maria Immacolata, one of the largest churches in Sardinia,
whose surprisingly neoclassical facade stands out in Piazza Duomo. Strolling through Alghero, and browsing between one alley and the other in the historic centre, you will come
across numerous testimonies of the Catalan period: luxurious and imposing palaces built between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, of which the marvellous facades, adorned
with mullioned windows and arches, tell the story. Palazzo Guillot, Palazzo Peretti, Palazzo Albis, Palazzo Machin illustrate the importance of the city, its
well-being and the wealth of the most prominent families. The church of San Francesco dates back to the late Gothic period and is absolutely worth visiting for
its essential and simple beauty, which is offset by its interior with seventeenth-century inserts. In the immediate vicinity, there is the church of San Michele,
the testimony of the city's baroque past with its splendid majolica dome. To finish your tour it is a must to visit the Coral Museum, located in a fascinating
Art Nouveau villa, it is a treasure chest containing Alghero's red gold, chiselled to create refined jewellery and objects of rare beauty. A small gem is, however, the MASE,
Museum dedicated to the author of the Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery in the evocative setting of the Torre Nuova. In the evening enjoy the seafront at
dusk, the historic centre of Alghero will welcome you in the cordiality of the many bars and restaurants in the alleys, in the light of the old city lanterns, a triumph for
the eyes and palate.
Outside the city
Your trip around Alghero, obviously with our rental car, will take you to the discovery of incredible landscapes of sea and land at a time of a journey full of suggestions and
surprises. So head north and start with a stop at the mysterious Anghelo Ruju Necropolis, one of the largest in Sardinia and certainly of great interest for
its vast internal galleries. From underground, go back to the surface and head to the Le Prigionette Natural Oasis, a naturalistic paradise where you can get
to know the local flora and fauna up close, especially bird watching in the quiet of the park. To experience the ancient Sardinian customs, just turn towards Uri, a characteristic
village where artisan art is inextricably intertwined with history: here, in the village, you will find the Santa Caterina nuraghe and the ancient laundry washhouse. Also in the
area is the Nuraghe Palmavera, a real village dating back to the Bronze Age, large and extensive, whose monumental appearance will leave you amazed.
Spectacular beaches and sea will accompany you everywhere, like that of Argentiera which is worth visiting for the fascinating industrial archaeology site of the
And now, open your eyes well and get ready for one of the most beautiful beaches in the world: we are talking about Pelosa, near Stintino and
Asinara: a postcard-worthy white-powder gulf, with its spectacular islet embellished by the sixteenth-century tower: a true paradise on earth envied internationally.
Heading south from Alghero you cannot miss the village of Villanova: traditional craftsmanship and mediaeval suggestions for a delightful village full of colourful
murals with rural scenes, corners of silence and small squares with gushing fountains for only 126 inhabitants! To conclude your tour, you still need a pinch of magic... This is what
you will find in Bosa, a village with a thousand coloured houses crossed by an old bridge over the river Temo, full of flowered balconies and wrought iron parapets,
narrow streets and old wooden doors. The spell of beauty will bewitch you forever.
The ZTL in Alghero
Alghero protects its historic centre with the ZTL area (Limited Traffic Zone) which extends to the entire old city and completely prohibits mobility except for residents.
In this area, access is pedestrian-only. You can learn more by consulting the website of the Municipality of Alghero. We also suggest
that you check the cost and time of parking on the blue lines.
