Alghero and its territory can have tourism in winter season as well.
That’s why two local touristic guides, Stefano Trova and Mario Paddeu, are suggesting two weeks of guided visits at the defensive military fortification on the slope of Monte Murone and Monte Doglia.
These sites date back to the Second World War and were built in 1943 by Italian Army to fight against hypothetical Allied Forces’ raids.
The aim of the guided visits is to promote and emphasize the value of this recent historical heritage, in order to raise more attention on an area which has great but unexpressed touristic potentialities.

At the beginning the visitor will see two circular structures (during the war provided with an howitzer cannon) linked by an underground tunnel and the old barracks; then we’ll go up on Monte Murone, and from its observatory we’ll have an astonishing view over the bay, the city of Alghero and the white cliffs of Capo Caccia.

You can have more infos and reserve your visit by calling or texting 3462458635 (Stefano) or 3400888126 (Mario).
