About Alghero, Sardinia
Dubbed Barceloneta, Alghero retains the Hispanic legacy of its time under Spanish rule from 1323 to 1720. Alghero's heart is a traditional Old Town that melds Catalan Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Neoclassical architecture in stunning combinations. The magic of this blend is encapsulated in the Cattedrale di Santa Maria, the Chiesa di San Francesco with its magnificent cloister, and the richly tiled cupola of the Chiesa di San Michele. Park your Alghero rental car for a while and wander along the atmospheric cobbled streets until you reach the monumental Palazzo d'Albis in the buzzing Piazza Civica. If you can, make time for the aquarium, the only one in Sardinia and a tranquil environment for the abundant underwater sealife.
The best views of the city are available from the Torre Sulis, a 15th century defensive tower. End your day admiring the sunset on the picturesque Lungomare (waterfront), surrounded by Romanesque pillars.
