Italy, Sardinia: Alghero and A Trip To Surrounding Nature

Published: 2.1.2021
West Sardinia is completely different from other parts. It is not mountainous, but it is rough, windy, wooded, almost flat and was a pleasant surprise for us at the end. I suddenly feel like I'm on another island, in another country.

Sentiero della Costa

Early in the morning we leave Stintino and set off on a 9-kilometer hike along the coast - Sentiero della Costa. You can park here without any problems, we set off from north to south. Right after entering the trek we can see two towers. The route is not quite easy, as it might seem, so I recommend sturdy shoes. We are constantly ascending and descending narrow paths, passing bays, beaches and cliffs. The road is very well marked in places, elsewhere the signage is completely missing, so we have to return a little. We can admire the diverse number of plants, shrubs, dwarf palms that are so typical of the area. After returning to the car we set off to Alghero, it is about 35 minutes away.

Even when we come here, it is impossible not to notice the form with Spanish Catalonia. Yes, Alghero is considered the Barcelona of Italy. After all, it is only 300 nautical miles from the coast of Spain. "Beautiful and well located." This is how Emperor Charles V named the city during his visit.

He has a rich history that would not fit into this article. The historic city center is surrounded by walls with fantastic views, which form the dominant feature of the city. Right on the walls you will find old cannons and other historical tools used for combat. In the small streets you will find a large number of restaurants, pizzerias, ice cream parlors, shops and bars. When we get from the streets to a smaller square, we can not fail to notice a very special building - Torre di San Giovanni. Thanks to local artists, this tower has a red coral structure around it. It is a mixture of ancient and modern. After a walk in the center, we head to the port, where we indulge in real Italian coffee on the promenade in the shade of palm trees and enjoy the view of the largest fishing port in Sardinia.

Alghero was our last stop from all over Sardinia. But there is much more to this area. For example, the very famous Grotta di Nettuno caves, the colorful town of Bosa or the town of Oristano. But it's always good to keep something for next time.
