Sassari is the provincial capital city, second only to Cagliari by population, and was built on a limestone platform sloping down to the Gulf of Asinara from whose beaches is about 15 km. The city was born in the medieval period when the inhabitants of coastal areas have fled to the countryside to escape the internal pirate raids. Thanks to this period, today there is a ‘intricate network of narrow streets in the historic core, where they overlook palaces, homes and a host of craft shops. The baroque facade of the cathedral dedicated to San Nicola, rises impressive in the the heart of the city. Italy Square is surrounded by elegant palaces adorned with Art Nouveau facades and around which it developed the nineteenth century city. Along the elegant Via Roma you get to the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum Giovanni Antonio Sanna, with important finds of nuragic period and prenuragic. The town is surrounded by ancient olive trees planted during the long Spanish domination that characterize the landscape and contribute to the production of the valuable oil of olive. A few kilometers from the city of Sassari, we can admire the Basilica of the Holy Trinity of Saccargia, erected in 1112 in Romanesque style and later expanded in Pisa style. The main tourist areas are Castelsardo, overlooking the Gulf of Asinara, enjoys a unique view on all the coasts of the Gulf, including those of Corsica; Alghero, also known as the “little Barcelona” because of the preservation of the Catalan language spoken by 22.4% of the people who speak it in the version of Alghero; finally, Stintino, the last stretch of the Sardinian land that juts out into a sea is an othere excellent place to visit.
