Alghero is one of the five largest cities on the island of Sardinia. It is the perfect place to wrap up your Italian private yacht charter. This 11th century town is packed with beautiful architecture, mouthwatering local food, and a historical center. What is very unique about Alghero, is that the population is noted for having retained the language of the Catalan rulers from the end of the Middle Ages, when Sardinia was part of the Crown of Aragon. Therefore, Alguerese, a Catalan dialect, is still spoken in Alghero, and recognized as a minority language. Many of the buildings are still standing from the Calalan time period of rule, and the cuisine is influenced by the Calalan roots while still being Italian.
