Relax, fun, culture, sports and emotions: poker hand for Alghero and Capo Caccia

A holiday in Sardinia, at Alghero with “the Coral Riviera”, is fascinating and extraordinary in many ways. In fact, a period of relaxation in this area is enriched by cultural cues of considerable interest. In a part of the territory, which is not so big, stunning historical and archeological finds dating back to the Prenuragic and Nuragic ages are kept.
The Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju is the largest Prenuragic area in Sardinia. It was discovered by chance in 1903, during the excavations for the building of a farmhouse. The finding of some human bones encouraged further excavations, until crockery, jewels and several hypogean graves were discovered. Over the years, a total of 38 Domus de Janas (Home of the Fairies) were discovered,

The Palmavera nuraghe

along with underground graves dating back to three different historic periods: the civilization of Ozieri (3500 B.C.), of the bell-shaped vase (2000-1900 B.C.), and of Bonnanaro (1800 B.C.).
Don’t miss, nearby, the magnificent Nuragic complex of Palmavera. The main keep dates back to the Fifteenth-Fourteenth century B.C., and can be still visited in all its parts; including the large central room with a tholos cupola. Considered the structure of the complex, which was built at the foot of the Doglia Mountain, archaeologists presume that it was surrounded by cabins and refuges. The second cycle of life of the Nuraghe, started after the first half of the Ninth century B.C., when a second keep was added and the first one was covered with blocks of sandstone, a very common (altro…)

The Netherlands remains one of the most attractive countries for tourism in Sardinia. We have seen this trend in Utrecht, at the Vakantiebeurs, the main tourism fair in the Land of Tulips, which ended yesterday.
Utrecht was the first stage of promotion in the Netherlands, because Saturday 25th January, ArchiMete’s staff will exhibit in Ede, in the Sardinië Vakantie Beurs, an event organized by Sardinië -info in the hall of the Hotel De Bosrand.
The fair in Utrecht also marked the debut of the new promotional campaign of ArchiMete, with the new catalogue of activities and new flyers printed in italian, english, german and dutch. Great interest about Sardinia, with couples, families and evergreen very passionate about Sardinian tourist offer. Both as accommodations (hotels, farm holidays, bed & breakfasts, campsites) and as the services of active tourism, in particular diving, snorkeling, kayaking and hiking. All these activities are organized in an area that includes two natural parks (one terrestrial and another marine) and is Unesco heritage.
