This is one of the largest towers that were part of Alghero’s defensive walls. It is currently closed for renovations.

Great views of the waterfront from this area. There is also a display of artillery from several periods.

Also known as Torre di Sulis, this tower is located in the south part of the old town, just by the sea. It was built in 16th century and you will not miss it when taking a stroll along the city walls. The walls are 6 metres thick. Name Torre di Sulis refers to Vincenzo Sulis, a 19th century Sardinian revolutionary who spent 22 years imprisoned there.

This is a lovely locale, the tower lending gravitas to a sunset walk. It's in good shape and they've made the surrounding area a good place to wander and see the other historic war bits. Make it your sunset plan.

The Torre is an imposing reminder of Alghero when it was a walled city and served as the center of Aragon's rule over Sardinia.

Sardinia is a large island (second largest in the Mediterranean after Sicily) with very distinct regions, mountainous to plains, rocky coastline to miles of sandy beaches . Not so densely populated. Several urban centers, each with its own particular history like Alghero: commercial and cultural center of the Aragonese when the King of Aragon (later Spain itself) ruled a large part of Sardinia for nearly 400 years, beginning in the early 1300's. Algherese, one of the island's officially recognized languages, blends Catalan with Old Latin ...enough so to clearly distinguish it from its Latin-based language cousins.

Arrived in the early evening, walked along the seaside promenade to the old town for a taste of local culinary fare...quite good. Next day repeated the exercise with a little more deliberation. Very nicely restored to its original Medieval/Mediterranean state. Cafes, restaurants, chapels and cathedrals at every twist and turn.

Bordering the length of its seaward face, an esplanade converted for that use from what had been the town's ramparts, cannons at the ready. These days the fortifications peacefully oversee a huge fleet of pleasure craft moored in the bay. Tourism is an important economic driver all over Sardinia....mainland Italians, Brits and Germans. Very few Americans.
