Alghero is a charming and dynamic little port, often called Sardinia's "Barceloneta", on account of its many Gothic-style buildings in the old town - a throwback to Catalan presence here dating back to the 14C. Alghero also boasts a promenade reminiscent of Las Ramblas, which leads to the long beach to the north of town. An ideal base camp for visiting the Nurra, from Capo Caccia to the Stintino peninsula and Isola dell'Asinara, and the hinterland that stretches eastward.
