Amazing Alghero, found lying in the north west of Sardinia, this popular holiday spot lies in the Sassari province.
A coastal medieval town that dates back to 1102. Many modern day Alghero locals understand an ancient Catalan dialect introduced in the fourteenth century known as Algherese. The languages of Spanish and then Italian went on to replace Catalan in the seventeenth century as the official language. It is not only the language that is influenced by the Spanish for the early architecture is Catalan influenced also.
Alghero has a vibrant medieval city centre. The streets of the Old Town are greatly cobbled and are pedestrianised allowing for peaceful undisturbed wanderings and meanderings at a pace that feels comfortable. The Old and New Towns are divided by seven fortified towers. The Porta Terra is a popular starting point for visitors to Alghero. Dating back to the fourteenth century, this is not all in the city that is over half a millennium long. The incredible Church of San Francesco and the piazza Duomo’s spectacular Cathedral were both built during the same century. In a similar style to the Catalan- Gothic Cathedral is the sixteenth century Albis Palace at the Piazza Civica – another magnificent example of Algherese architecture. At this point, you are forgiven for feeling a tad smug for selecting this humble island for your holiday destination and allowing yourself the opportunity to savour the jewels of its favourite town.
