Alghero is situated in the province of Sassari in northwestern Sardinia, Italy, lying next to the sea. The city is known for its romantic beaches, good and reasonably priced food; and its Catalan roots. Alghero used to be called “Little Barcelona” due to the Catalan colonists that invaded the city during the 16th century. Some of Alghero’s popular attractions include the Cattedrale Di Santa Maria, which is a 19th century cathedral located in the Piazza Duomo Alghero, and Neptune’s Grotto, a stalactite cave discovered by local fishermen in the 18th century.
