16th-century tower is now used for temporary exhibitions. Walls 4.3m thick and the overall impression is that it's massive.

Our group y=used this tower, opposite the bank, as a point of reference when exploring Alghero. Another fine example of a defensive tower (Tower of Saint John) which was currently bing used to display an art exhibit.

This is one of the 3 towers left of the old city fortifications. It sits in the middle of a square and looks very impressive, especially at night.

Beautiful spot which reminds you the glory of passed times and helps you to enjoy lovely panoraic view over the city. Definitely reccomend you to climb up the stairs in the evening in order to enjoy the sunset. By the way, it's more than just...More

Torre di San Giovanni is a nice and interesting tower, right at the historic centre of Alghero. Part of your tour around town.

A stroll along the old walls of Alghero is always worth doing. Enjoy it by day or by night, either way it's just spectacular! Let the ancient watch towers remind you of the long and exciting history of this beautiful island called Sardinia.
