“Alghero Vecchia” is the charming old town of Alghero. It is surrounded by seven great towers and the old walls that still stand at the sea edge. They date back to the Catalan-Aragonese conquests in the sixteenth century.
The narrow cobbled streets and alleys of the Old Town are abuzz with people and activities until late at night. Summer and spring are the peak seasons when the whole city comes to life.
The car-free zone of this historic centre of Alghero is perfect for enjoying a leisurely stroll. Here you can find perfect gifts in the many small shops, sample local produce in the bars and restaurants and visit the old churches.
The fifteenth century palaces, the Civic Theatre with its neoclassic façade, the cathedral and the sixteenth century bell tower of Santa Maria are all representative of a long Sardinian legacy; even the houses of the centre of Alghero stood through the bombings of the Second World War.
