Embark on a journey to Castelsardo, a gem nestled in the captivating Golfo dell’Asinara on the northwest side of Sardinia. This small medieval town seamlessly combines the allure of crystal-clear seas with a romantic ambiance. Explore the renowned Castello dei Doria, a majestic structure dating back to the eleventh century, and don’t miss the chance to visit the Museo dell’Intreccio housed within the castle walls.
A visit to the Concattedrale, known for its majestic bell tower adorned with colorful majolicas, is a must. Inside Maria’s Basilica, you’ll encounter the famous Cristo Nero (Black Christ), a remarkable wooden masterpiece. Following your time in Castelsardo, proceed to Aggius.

Aggius offers an enchanting landscape featuring cork-oak forests, granite rocks, and lush Mediterranean greenery. This village, situated in the heartland of Gallura, boasts quaint houses constructed from local granite stoneā€”an outstanding example of traditional folk architecture. In 2005, Aggius was awarded the Orange Flag by the Italian Touring Club for its charming old town, environmental attractions, and well-organized tourist services.
Adjacent to the village lies the Valle della Luna, home to the Nuraghe Izzana. This “moon valley” features scattered granite rocks and stones across a vast plain, complemented by vibrant Mediterranean vegetation. Conclude your day’s adventure with a return to the hotel or a reserved restaurant.

This excursion can be enjoyed from both Olbia and Alghero, offering a flexible and immersive experience for travelers from either location.
