Alghero, the city where to take a tour of the towers
Alghero is surely one of the most interesting and fascinating Sardinian cities, in a Region famous for its wonderful beaches that every year welcome many tourists.
However, this town allows a continuous discovery of historical beauties, all of them enclosed within the ancient city walls. The whole Alghero old town is characterised by two wonderful towers.
Torre di Porta Terra is named after the historic entrance gate of the city. You can go on a multimedia tour inside of it to discover the history, customs and traditions of the city from the origins to the present day.
Nearby Torre di Porta Terra, you can find Torre di San Giovanni and 150 metres ahead you can admire Torre dello Sperone or Esperò Reial, also known as Torre Sulis, which is the highest tower of the city walls (it is 22 metres high).
Torre Sulis is placed in Piazza Sulis, the main centre of Alghero’s nightlife. Walking through the pedestrian area, you can get to Torre della Polveriera and to the Garita Reial (or Torre della Lanterna), on the opposite side.
To close the towers tour you can visit Torre di Sant’Elmo, also known as Torre de La Madonnina, because of the statue of the Virgin Mary on the top. At its feet you can admire the whole harbour and the crowdy promenade.
Lastly, in the old town you can visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria, built in the early 1500s according to the late Gothic style.
Discover the most beautiful Alghero beaches by a rented car
