A pearl in the northwestern area of the ancient Sardinia
It is an ancient catalan hamlet by the sea, sunny and full of colours and landscapes, stories and myths about ancient civilizations, the sound of the old catalan language, the charm of the most extreme sports and with a mild climate throughout the entire year. It also offers many natural paths (that can be covered by foot or by bike), trekking, traditional tastes and flavours revisited in a modern way. Alghero is the perfect place for those who want to spend their holiday in close contact with nature, in the quiet mediterranean countryside, or for those who love sports and hiking.
Its territory has an enchanting nature and amazing landscapes with uncontaminated areas such as the natural parks and protected reserves. From the green of the Porto Conte Park to the deep blue of the amazing protected marine area: different environments between hills and plains, sea and coastlines perfect for sports and excursions on and below the sea level. Walking through its centuries-old walls, alleys and narrow streets, the tourists can feel the typical charm that only maritime localities have.
The sea is everywhere in Alghero's landscapes. There is also a tourist harbour where the big yachts meet the colourful traditional fishermen boats and many other places to relax.
