About Alghero

 

Alghero is a historical city, renowned for the beauty of its beaches, for its ancient town centre, for its so-called Caves of Neptune, for its culinary traditions and for its excellent wines.

Alghero, ancient feudal territory of the Genoese, was colonized towards the middle of the 14th century by the Catalans, who called it "Barceloneta", little Barcelona, giving it mighty fortifications that still characterize its landscape. Today, after more than six centuries, this beautiful city on the Riviera del Corallo (Coral Riviera) still posses urban traits, architecture, folklore and the language of its Catalan forefathers.

Alghero is the most characteristic tourist resort on the Riviera del Corallo. Its coastline is blessed with small bays that conceal soft beaches encircled by thick pine forests and rugged reefs lapped by the waves of the emerald-green sea.

The perennially mild climate, the transparency and extraordinary colours of the sea and the fragrant aroma of the Mediterranean combine to ensure that you enjoy a pleasant stay.
