ALGHERO BOSA SARDEGNA MAREWe start from Alghero, also known as Barceloneta, the little Barcellona: here you can hear people speaking Catalan, which is recognised by the Italian Republic and by the Region Sardinia as a minority language. Don’t miss the church of san Michele, Palace Machìn and the ancient walls built to protect the city many centuries ago. Foto Alghero: di zoomion.ch, wikimedia CC BY-SA 3.0

Alghero – Bosa SP105

ALGHERO BOSA CABU NIEDDUThe provincial road 105 starts in Alghero and we suggest to go south to keep the sea at your right side and enjoy it in the better way.

It’s a plain road, bend after bend, but the surface isn’t always perfect. Don’t go too fast for safety reasons and also to experience the landscapes. You can stop at many rest areas to take amazing pictures. Cabu Nieddu cascata: di Angelo Perria Pubblico dominio

Bosa

ALGHERO BOSA SARDEGNA MAREBefore reaching Bosa, the provincial road becomes SP45 (make no mistakes). Arrived in the little borgo of fishermen (Bosa Marina), turn towards the center, along river Temo. In the little town, nominated royal city under the Aragonese domination, you will find many churches and military monuments. Spend a little time at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, the town’s Cathedral, and at the Castello di SerravalleFoto Bosa: di Gianni Careddu, CC BY-SA 3.0

Cuglieri and S’Archittu SS292

ALGHERO BOSA SARDEGNA MARE cuglieriGoing south, along state road 292, there is the borgo of Cuglieri: the town fans out like an amphitheatre on Bardosu hill. From the roman dominion, here you’ll find the remains of the VI century BCE Phoenician-Punic Cornus, centre of an anti-Roman revolt during the Punic Wars. Cuglieri is important for the production of olive oil and for the old churches and monasteries, like the Basilica di Santa Maria ad Nives (of the Snow). The nuraghi nearby are countless, over 50, but the most important are “Oratiddo, Nuraghe Maggiore, Baragiones, Mannigos, Frommigas e Uglieras”. Foto Cuglieri: di Angelo Perria – Own work, Public Domain

S’Archittu belongs to the comune of Cuglieri, and is famous for the natural arch and there is also Cabu Nieddu, famous for the waterfalls into the sea, the only ones in Italy, few kilometers at north.
