Nurra

Overview

An unspoilt area a few miles from Sassari and Alghero

The Nurra is one of the most fascinating areas of Sardinia, a natural paradise where beauty, history and culture overwhelm visitors looking for a dream holiday. The territory of the Nurra extends into the north-western area of the large island, starting from the city of Sassari and up to the great Asinara National Park, a scattered natural treasure that extends for 50 square kilometres among beaches, coves, high ridges overlooking the sea and wild and unspoilt nature.

In addition to Sassari, where the imposing cathedral and the city's symbol, the splendid Rosello Fountain, stand out, Nurra's most interesting sites also include Alghero , with its historic centre of rare beauty and old town walls, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea. Those looking for scenic spots can count on Monte Doglia, the highest point of the Nurra, while for a few days of absolute relaxation you can immerse yourself in the wonder of Asinara Island or in the Porto Conte Nature Park on the outskirts of Alghero, full of sea caves to discover by boat.
