Nuraghe PalmaveraAgave farmhouse is in a very convenient tourist area, enjoying the quietness of the countryside whilst being only a few minutes away from the historic city centre of Alghero.

Nearby it is possible to visit historical sites like the Palmavera Nuraghe, the Domus de Jana, the ancient Roman ruins and  if you love nature, you cannot miss the famous Grotte di Nettuno (Neptune’s caves), Lake Baratz, the only natural basin of Sardinia, or the Arca di Noè Punta Giglio( Noah’s ark) park where it is possible to see the Giara horses which are characteristic of our island.  From Alghero it is also possible to take an excursion to the well known Asinara island, made accessible to the public only few years ago.

ALGHERO

In the Northwest area of Sardinia ( 7 mts a.s.l.,  pop. 40594 ), the “little Barcelona” went through its first development in the XII century thanks to the Doria family. It was then conquered in 1348 by King Peter the Ceremonious and his Catalan-Aragon expedition. The Iberian newcomers  re populated Alghero, strengthened its walls and built watchtowers higher of the existing ones.
In 1501  Alghero  became a real city, re opened its gates to the foreigners and enjoyed a development within its walls. In 1720 it passed to the Savoias but its Catalan customs have never been dropped. Following the further expansion of the city, the walls were knocked down and today they are standing only on the side facing the sea. In 1943 an ally-bombing raid damaged the historical centre, which despite this still remains remarkable for its Mediterranean-Catalan characteristics.  The art of coral working has been important for centuries.
