16th-century tower is now used for temporary exhibitions. Walls 4.3m thick and the overall impression is that it's massive.

Our group y=used this tower, opposite the bank, as a point of reference when exploring Alghero. Another fine example of a defensive tower (Tower of Saint John) which was currently bing used to display an art exhibit.

This is one of the 3 towers left of the old city fortifications. It sits in the middle of a square and looks very impressive, especially at night.

Torre di San Giovanni is a nice and interesting tower, right at the historic centre of Alghero. Part of your tour around town.

A stroll along the old walls of Alghero is always worth doing. Enjoy it by day or by night, either way it's just spectacular! Let the ancient watch towers remind you of the long and exciting history of this beautiful island called Sardinia.
