Alghero is on the North West coast of Sardinia and though it was colonised in the mid 14th century by the Spanish it still retains its Italian influences with fortified walls and a network of narrow streets surrounding the harbour. The narrow streets are mostly free of vehicles and so visitors can relax and enjoy the numerous café’s, restaurants and shops. Being a harbour town, Alghero prides itself on its freshly caught seafood.Located close to Alghero are plentiful places of interest including Grotta di Nettuno, the abandoned mine at Argentiera and Anghelu Ruju.
Grotta di Nettuno or Neptune’s Grotto, is the best known of these and is a network of caves discovered by fishermen in the eighteenth century. stalactites and stalagmites within the cave system are formed into shapes such as organ pipes and cathedral columns and although touching the rock and taking pictures is meant to be restricted these rules are almost always ignored so you can get some amazing pictures.
The abandoned silver mine at Argentiera was used up until the 1960’s and the shafts, miner’s quarters and chapel all stand virtually untouched. Argentiera also offers some of the most beautiful shingle bays in Sardinia.
