A sea of history in the Riviera del Corallo

Alghero is a pretty town in the province of Sassari, in the Northeast of Sardinia. Alghero is the most recognizable tourist area of the “Riviera del Corallo”, from the rich coasts of its secluded bays, to the small creeks which hide soft beaches fringed by dense pine forests, and the jagged cliffs washed by an emerald green sea.

The historic centre is a more unique than rare jewel in Sardinia and the year 1354 was the birthdate of “Catalan Alghero”.
That Alghero is very much the same today, not only in the language and traditions, but also in the monuments which, constructed in the centre of town, often “speak Catalan”. The monuments in question aren’t just the two elegant bell towers and the most significant architectural parts of the Cathedral and San Francisco, but also the many palaces built in the Catalan Gothic style.

The Beaches of Alghero

White, white beaches and crystalline sea are characteristics common to the major part of the beaches of the Alghero area. The majority of them are equipped and allow the hiring of brollies and sun-beds. There are plenty snack areas and swimming establishments in total harmony with the surrounding territory. Amkng the most famous deserve a mention the Beach of Le Bombarde , the Beach of Lazzaretto , the Beach of Mugoni and that of the Lido of Alghero , splendid every one and a few minutes from the Campsite.
