Discovering the Beauty of Alghero: A Journey from Olbia to Capo Caccia and Beyond

As we bid farewell to Olbia, the sun rises on the horizon, ready for an exciting adventure towards Alghero. This day promises to take us to places steeped in history and natural beauty. The first stop of our journey leads us to Capo Caccia, a charming promontory overlooking the majestic Mediterranean Sea. The towering cliffs and the underground Neptune’s caves are a must-see for nature and adventure enthusiasts.

After immersing ourselves in the beauty of Capo Caccia, we head to Palmavera, an archaeological site that takes us back in time. The Palmavera nuraghe are extraordinary examples of the Nuragic civilization, with their mysterious stone towers and the surrounding village. Walking among the ruins, we feel like we have entered an ancient, unknown world.

Our day continues on the beautiful beach of Alghero, with its turquoise sea and golden sand. Here, we relax and enjoy the sun, perhaps taking a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear waters.

The cherry on top of this unforgettable trip is a dinner at the Barbagia agriturismo. This place offers us an authentic culinary experience, with local dishes prepared with fresh and genuine ingredients. We savour the richness of Sardinian flavours, from porceddu to pane Carasau, and end the evening with traditional desserts.

As the sun sets and the sky fills with warm colours, we reflect on the beauty and culture of Alghero. This journey has taken us through time and space, giving us unforgettable moments. Alghero is truly a gem of Sardinia that we can’t wait to explore again.
