Alghero is refreshingly uncontrived and despite its long Catalan connection - conquered by Aragon in 1353 - (street names appear in Catalan as well as Italian), its old centre has the feel of an ancient Italian town, often being likened to Sorrento or San Remo. The town's cobbled streets are jammed with boutiques, bars and restaurants.

Alghero's atmospheric old centre is its real attraction, and it can easily be explored on foot. Much of the architecture, which reflects Catalan and Gothic influences, dates from the 16th century. Seven towers, built to strenghthen the town's defences, dominate the centre.
