Alghero is a very charming city, and the perfect place for those who love the fine architecture influenced by the Aragonese-Catalan people. Under the Aragona’s Crown, the fortress city of Alghero grew.

You will discover that the old town with narrow, winding, streets is fulfilled with boutiques, a tourist boardwalk, Aragonese bastions, and a pleasant beach for walking.
