Alghero and Sardinia
The city of Alghero (population of about 45,000, rising to about 100,000 in summer) is situated in the North-West of the island on the Riviera del Corallo or Coral Riviera, and is sheltered by the stunningly beatiful headland of Capo Caccia.
The city’s historical origins date back to the Genoans, who were the first to settle in the area around the present day port, directly in front of the bastions. At the start of the 14th Century the city came under Catalan rule and remained so for about four hundred years until it was annexed under Savoy rule, becoming the Kingdom of Sardinia and the embryo of the Italian state. It is this melting-pot of architectural styles, with a strong Catalan flavour, which makes the old town so picturesque: tiny churches and well-preserved buildings are found around every corner in its maze of colourful and lively side-streets.
