Introducing Alghero (Sassari)

The Ancient City, the history of the "City Fortress" Among the cobble-stone streets of the historical centre, in the façade of the palaces, among the mullions and the walled in doors, is hidden the history, the image and identity of Alghero. “There at the shore, this city closed off by ramparts shows from the bottom of its walls, gothic fortresses, bell towers, cupolas, bastions of a citadel and the roofs of the white houses (…) and my spirit returns sweetly to Barcellona'. (G.C. Vuiller, Les Iles oubliés)

Among the cobble-stone streets of the historical centre, in the façade of the palaces, among the mullions and the walled in doors, is hidden the history, the image and identity of Alghero: Catalonia. It is Catalonia in the architectonic and urban details; it is Catalonia in the Catalan spoken by its inhabitants, which is an expression of a feeling of belonging and affinity with the motherland that is still so alive and vital. The same language spoken by the walls of the city, the architecture and the signs on its churches and the oldest of its palaces.
