The Medieval Sardinian Town; Alghero, Italy

The Medieval Sardinian Town

Destination; Alghero, Italy

The medieval Sardinian town is an intriguing mixture of the traditional architecture of the region and the best of the Moor heritage. If you get the feeling of a vague similarity to Barcelona, it’s not accidental – for centuries Alghero was under Catalan rule.

Lazzaretto is among Sardinia’s top beaches and the sea here is suitable not only for sunbathing, but also for all kinds of surfing. Add more than six-millennia old archeological remains, the picturesque Neptune’s Cave and delicious seafood cuisine (lobsters, sea urchins and the legendary local fish soup), and you won’t need any more reasons to head for Alghero.

Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy

If you too want a glimpse of this picturesque sight, then head to the Cylindrical Tower of the famous Doria Castle here and be prepared to be amazed.
