This is one of the towers that were part of the city walls. This one was the main entrance to the city.

Today it houses the Tourist Information Office and a book store on the ground floor.

On the second floor you will find touch screens which provide a lesson on Alghero’s history.

On top is a terrace which offers views of the harbor and city.

The immediate environs are busy and steeped in ancient character, looking rather like buildings have been stacked upon one another. Fascinating area of the Old City.

Located near the Giardini Pubblici (public gardens). It's a 14th-century tower, remaining part of Porta a Terra, one of the two main gates into the medieval Alghero. 23 metres high, it has a panoramic terrace - however we were too late to get in.

We spent many hours wondering the narrow streets in this part of Alghero. Beautiful churches, scenic buildings, a beautiful "garden" street and the seaside promenade - beautiful sunsets here! If you descent on the shore below the fortified walls you can also take a nice walk or sunbathe (there's a little sand beach in an angle of the city walls) or take a dip in the water. Kind of rocky but crystal clear.

As you head into the old town, this magnificent tower "guards the way". beautiful example of one of the few Spanish towers that still exist in Alghero.

Beautiful aragonese tower just in the center of city. It is still in good condition and is one of the most important tower in Alghero.

I walked around the old port area. I started on my bicycle but the streets are very rough cobblestones and it just is easier to walk, particularly if you have rather narrow tires. It is a pleasant old town but not particularly spectacular.

Very picturesque, almost like a fairy tale dream town, with local products to taste. I was lucky to visit it in early November which was like....May!

One of the ancient towers of the old fortifications of the city. You can climb up thi sone (for free), which is a bit of a climb, but the views on top are worth it!
