We were walking along the city wall and admired the view when looked at this historic tower. It’s one of the most famous towers in Alghero. It was the entrance of (Aljama) „the Jewish Quarter”in the age of Peter 4. I think you mustn’t miss the city gate tower!

This is one of several towers in the city walls and was an entrance into the city.
There is a Tourist Information Centre in the tower now.

Renamed Porta a Terra in the Savoy era, it was originally the Porta Reial, which is the main entrance to the city, dominated by the stone crest of the Aragon crown, now preserved inside. The door, which was closed at dusk, allowed entry and exit from the city until the end of the nineteenth century, when the city was demilitarized. It houses a bookshop on the ground floor. Upstairs are touch screens provide a virtual journey through Alghero’s history, and a top floor terrace offers panoramic city and harbour views.

One of the entry points to the old city, opposite from the marina.
Nice old Aragonese tower with formidable looking architecture.

This is one of the towers that were part of the city walls. This one was the main entrance to the city.

Today it houses the Tourist Information Office and a book store on the ground floor.

On the second floor you will find touch screens which provide a lesson on Alghero’s history.

On top is a terrace which offers views of the harbor and city.

The immediate environs are busy and steeped in ancient character, looking rather like buildings have been stacked upon one another. Fascinating area of the Old City.

Located near the Giardini Pubblici (public gardens). It's a 14th-century tower, remaining part of Porta a Terra, one of the two main gates into the medieval Alghero. 23 metres high, it has a panoramic terrace - however we were too late to get in.

We spent many hours wondering the narrow streets in this part of Alghero. Beautiful churches, scenic buildings, a beautiful "garden" street and the seaside promenade - beautiful sunsets here! If you descent on the shore below the fortified walls you can also take a nice walk or sunbathe (there's a little sand beach in an angle of the city walls) or take a dip in the water. Kind of rocky but crystal clear.
