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.

If you're in the town and happen to come across this, then it's a decent sight to stop of at, ootherwise wouldn't go out of my way to see.

Beautiful spot which reminds you the glory of passed times and helps you to enjoy lovely panoraic view over the city. Definitely reccomend you to climb up the stairs in the evening in order to enjoy the sunset. By the way, it's more than just romantic.

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.
