e-borghi travel 4, Sea and villages: Alghero - The coral coastline: the treasure from Sardinia

Alghero is an amazing place. The ramparts dating back to the 16th century and the towers that surround the old village which is perched on a cliff are the reference points of 90 kilometres of the coral coastline and Alghero is the main landmark. Let’s start with the historical centre of this destination, the fifth in Sardinia and one the best loved because of a perfect match of old and new features, its nature and its culture, its accessibility not far from the airport of Fertilia as well as its top-quality food and wine. After you have passed over the Door of the Sea you’ll get lost among the narrow streets and the paved squares many of which still have Catalan names. Actually Alghero has been a Spanish city for many centuries and the evidence of this civilization is still visible. There are the noble palaces and the churches, the cathedral dating back to the 16th century stands out, it’s one of the biggest churches in Sardinia as well as the church of San Michele which is featured by a multi-coloured dome dating back to the 16th century: the Baroque and Liberty details are also evident.
