Review of Palazzo Carcassona

Reviewed 3 June 2012

Palazzo Carcassone is an apartment building. It was built towards the end of the 15th century in the Jewish quarter of Alghero and became the residence of the wealthy Carcassona family..
The portal shows Catalan fan-shaped dressed stones. During the Spanish inquisition in 1492 Sardinian Jews were expelled. It is said but not confirmed by documents that the Carcassonas converted to Christianity. During a visit at the local archives I was told that very little is known about the Jewish quarter as well as its community. I was lucky to be in Alghero on "monumentiaperti" or monument day. Schoolchildren explained some facts at the 25 sites, in local language only! Except for the Palazzo there are no remains of the Jewish quarter.
