The town of Alghero

introCitta


Alghero enjoys a very varied natural panorama that ranges from sandy beaches to cliffs and flat or jagged stones: the sea view is most appreciated, as the variety of the coast mixed with the vegetation can be admired, the typical Mediterranean scrub and the pine forests that often provide the backdrop. The promontory of Capo Caccia provides another well-loved landscape, with its now famous cliff in the shape of a sleeping giant, and which has now become one of the symbols of Alghero, together with the very valuable red coral. The area of Capo Caccia with the overlooking Isola Piana and the Gulf of Porto Conte, is a site of major natural interest, with the protected natural sea area of Capo Caccia Isola Piana. The unique geological conformation (karst origin) makes the area a wealth of caves and ravines, still to a great extent unexplored. This is precisely where the famous Neptune’s Caves are located, accessible both by sea and land (down the famous Escala del Cabirol (Deer’s stairway) of 656 steps), and which offers up an internal panorama of rooms and pools, like the ‘giant’s pool’, and stalactites and stalagmites of unique shapes, like the ‘organ’. On the eastern side of Capo Caccia, the Embroidery Cave and the Green Cave drop sheer down into the sea, and can only be reached by sea. In the first, many concretions owe their origins to calcareous embroideries, currently, in fact, it is completely devastated and the concretions are spread pretty much everywhere. In the second, on the other hand, we you still see the remains of ancient graffiti dating back to Palaeolithic times, now almost lost through vandalism and past attempts to tear it out.
