Hi, would this be a good hotel for a 12 year old daughter to enjoy? Are there a lot of area sites and things to do?
Dear Mr & Mrs,
We are pleased to inform you that Villa Las Tronas is a good hotel to enjoy for adults and teenagers, close enough, about 15 minutes, to the old town to walk comfortably and visit Alghero by foot.
During your stay we surrely suggest to visit the historic centre of Alghero with the ruins of the town walls, towers, Aragonese palaces and Gothic-Catalan churches, in particular the Cathedral and St. Francis’ Church.
In the countryside around Alghero certainly worthy of visit is the tomb of Santu Pedru and the prehistoric altar of Monte d’Accoddi, the beautiful prenuragic complex of tombs of Anghelu Ruju, the Neptune's Grotto (one of the most picturesque caves in Sardinia), the most famous Romanesque church "Santissima Trinità di Saccargia" and also the beautifuls beachs like some strips of pure white sand bordered by crystal-clear sea.
We also suggest a visit to the Sella & Mosca wine-cellars or make an Alghero tour with a tasting of typical local products.
Moreover we just would like reccommend the following destination all worthy to visit and easy to reach by car:
Castelsardo, a fortress on the sea at around 70 kilometres from Alghero;
Bosa and the Malspina castle, that is a mediaeval town on the river, fairly close to Alghero;
Stintino was once a small town of fisherman, right opposite the Asinara Island that it housed a maximun security prison and today it is a park.
the Necropolis Anghelu Ruju, the tomb complex Prenuraghic is located 10 km from Alghero on the road to Porto Torres, the Two Seas. Is one of the largest necropolis in Sardinia (38 underground) and one of the most important archaeological sites in the Mediterranean;
Nuraghe Palmavera is classified by archaeologists as a nuraghe complex, which consists of several towers joined together to form a veritable palace Nuragic. It is located in northern Sardinia, along the road from Alghero port to the bay of Porto Conte;
the Neptune's Caves (one of the most picturesque caves in Sardinia);
Temple / Shrine of Mount d'Accoddi The town of Mount Accoddi, a few km from Porto Torres in direction Sassari, houses an attractive terraced temple altar (2800-2600 BC), which has been compared to the type of ziqqurrat Mesopotamia;
the Sanna Museum in Sassari, born in 1878, this museum keeps a very important archaelogical section, an art gallery and an ethnographical selection. The visit takes about 2 hours. Opening time: Tuesday to Sunday, 9.00 – 20.00 (the ticket office closes at 19.30);
the most famous Romanesque church "Santissima Trinità di Saccargia";
the Nuraghe Santu Antine, in the territory of Torralba, that is a kind of trefoil, where a strong rampart on three smaller towers reinforces the central tower, which now reaches a height of about 18 meters.
