The town's Spanish heritage can be seen in many of its buildings including the beautiful church of San Francesco and the towers and bastions which remain from the old Spanish fortifications.
Tourists arriving at Alghero Airport (AHO) always visit the city's Old Town, with its narrow cobbled streets, named in both Italian and Catalan, and packed with restaurants, bars and boutique shops, particularly around the Via Carlo Alberto.
