The visit of the city can start from the central Porta Terra, ideally placed to divide the new city from the old one. Continuing the walk we arrive in Largo San Francesco, where the Torre San Juan is located, and then in Piazza Sulis where we can admire the largest city tower, Torre dello Sperone. Continuing the route of the old walls you reach the Torre San Giacomo. Continuing along the Marco Polo promenade you arrive at the Bastione del Mirador, which offers a magnificent view over the bay of Alghero.
A little further on opens the Porta a Mare which leads to Piazza Civica. In the nearby Piazza Duomo there is the Cathedral of Santa Maria.
The imposing church of San Michele overlooks Piazza Ginnasio. In via Carlo Alberto stands the oldest and most original monumental complex in Alghero, the church of San Francesco with its characteristic Cloister.
Heading north from the port, one of the longest sandy coasts in Sardinia begins.
Located about 24 km from Alghero, on the north-west side of the Capo Caccia promontory, in the homonymous protected area of north-western Sardinia.
