“Love Alghero”

Torre di Porta Terra
Ranked #17 of 107 things to do in Alghero
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We absolutely loved Alghero while visiting Sardinia recently as it's one of my favourite places in the world. The various torre around the harbour are charming and fit in well while walking around the old town.

Alghero is my absolute favourity city here on Sardinia! It was founded by the genuese Family Doria back in the 12th century. It is the only "catalan city outside Spain", where you will find the street names in both languages and 60% of the inhabitants still speak a catalan dialect, calling their city "L'Alguer".
The whole athmosphere of this ancient city (no cars!) protected by massive city walls and towers where you find those old brick sidewalks with phantastic shops built into the old catalan-gothic stile "catacombe or cave- stile" lower parts of the houses is certainly unique. I advise you to walk through the "Porta a Mare" up along the massive fortress walls with 7 towers along the sea, with innumerable small, pitturesque houses, restaurants, bars, enjoy the spectacular view at CAPO CACCIA at the horizon and then enjoy the sunset at Lungomare Dante south of the ancient city.
