Mens sana in corpore sano. “Techno-Tourism”: the new frontier of tourism in Sardinia is called TMW

18 dicembre 2012 | By

Research and technology applied to tourism. It starts from Alghero, in Sardinia, the innovative project TMW, acronym for Technological Multisport Week, experience in active tourism supported by advanced technologies.
The project was born from the cooperation between the sardinian society ArchiMete Ltd., headquartered in Tramariglio (Alghero – Capo Caccia) and specialized in active tourism and, Area 3 – A Human Motion Lab and Aqvatech Engineering, companies both operating in the Science and Technology Park of “Porto Conte Ricerche”, within the wonderful natural environment of Capo Caccia.
Tourism has potential for sustaining development of Sardinia and Italy, but is going through a difficult time due to the international economic crisis. That’s why ArchiMete, Area 3 and Aqvatech studied and launched TMW, multisport original and innovative week. The idea is to link the practice of sports to a unique environment: the area of Alghero, the land Park of Porto Conte and the Marine Protected Area of Capo Caccia and Isola Piana. Everything with the support of science, technology and training of the companies located in the prestigious Science and Technology Park of Porto Conte Ricerche.
In this way tourists have the opportunity to live environment and nature through the practice of activities such as diving, snorkeling, trekking, kayaking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

 

The added value of TMW is the possibility to make a check-up of physical qualities (such as strength, balance, body composition, etc..) during functional assessment performed by Area 3. The same model used by the athletes of Dinamo-Bank of Sardinia Sassari, team that (altro…)

Green and responsible is better. ArchiMete is official supporter of WTM World Responsible Tourism Day

22 settembre 2012 | By

Many small individual actions to reach a great goal: protect the environment and have a better world to live. And…, of course, where to spend unique holidays!
It is the spirit of our company, that operates in the hearth of north-west Sardinia, in the Regional Natural park of Porto Conte and in the Marine protected area of Capo Caccia-isola Piana.
For us the “green philosophy” it’s a must. And we believe in it strongly.
That’s why in this first year we chose to participate at the World Travel Market in London (5-8 november), and we joined the WTM World Responsible Tourism Day 2012, planned on 7th november.

 

WTM WRTD has four realistic objectives for this day of action and with support from the UNWTO wants the industry to work together to:
• help drive change by educating (altro…)

Responsible tourism … at work. The challenge is open at the World Travel Market 2012 in London

12 agosto 2012 | By

 

The labour policies in Sardinia must pass by a well-coordinated revival of tourism. In whatever form it is developed (of course, better if sustainable and responsible): active, hotels, campings, luxury, linked to the sea, golf and many other activities.
But if the goal is to create prosperity for a region unique in the world for nature, culture, traditions, food and wine, the whole system needs to change pace quickly.
If it is true -as unfortunately confirms recent statistics compiled by the study centers of many professional associations- that in Italy one day per week is burned by bureaucracy, honor to italians entrepreneurs that, despite the difficulties, are able to obtain excellent results.

The entrepreneurial class continues to invest in productive sectors that are more interesting. And among these, in Sardinia, there is of course tourism. For this reason, from 5 to 8 November  2012, ArchiMete staff will be in London, among the exhibitors at World Travel Market – WTM 2012 – International Fair of Tourism, which is one of the most important appointments for the operators tourism industry worldwide. The WTM 2012 comes five months after the workshop in Spanish buyers and tour operators in Sardinia promoted in Madrid and that allowed us to test the great interest that the Western European market has for Sardinia.

We have chosen to participate at WTM 2012 in London in the awareness to represent a part of one of the many tourist potential of this region. We think strongly that this effort can become powerful driving force for the creation of new jobs, yet highly qualified.

The Tower of Tramariglio

17 febbraio 2012 | By

It is, without a doubt, the most important among the several coastal towers in the area of the Regional Park of Porto Conte; dominating the Tramariglio bay and the tourist centre ArchiMete. It was realized in chalky material at the end of the Sixteenth century, during the Spanish dominion. Today, it is still in good conditions, and from the inside, the dome vault and pillar on the terrace are visible, with the holes which allowed light to penetrate the structure.

The Tower of Tramariglio

28 gennaio 2012 | By


It is, without a doubt, the most important among the several coastal towers in the area of the Regional Park of Porto Conte; dominating the Tramariglio bay and the tourist centre ArchiMete. It was realized in chalky material at the end of the Sixteenth century, during the Spanish dominion. Today, it is still in good conditions, and from the inside, the dome vault and pillar on the terrace are visible, with the holes which allowed light to penetrate the structure.

The land park

24 gennaio 2012 | By

The sport centre ArchiMete Sardegna is located in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte, a natural protected area of great value created in 1999. The park covers an area of 5,350 hectares in the territory under the Municipality of Alghero, and presents very varied and unique landscapes. The coastal area is located between Capo Caccia on the western side and Punta Giglio on the eastern side; and is characterized by wide cliff ridges, which fall off into the sea; alternating with less steep stretches of rocks. Instead, the cape hinterland is dominated by soft and small hills where wild animals can often be spotted: from wild boars to deer; from fallow deer to weasels; including hedgehogs and the white donkeys of the Asinara, which can be seen within the state owned forest “Arca di Noè” (Noah’s Ark) at Le Prigionette, a few hundred metres far from the tourist centre ArchiMete Sardegna.
A few kilometres further north is the Baratz lake, the only natural lake of Sardinia and privileged destination of hiking, biking and riding tours, which passes through the area of Porto Ferro. Extending for half a kilometre, it is a real natural outdoor laboratory, thanks to the presence of several species of flora and fauna. On the lake’s shore the flourishing maquis include Cistus, wild rosemary, myrtle, lavender, and strawberry plants; and among the bushes, it’s easy to spot birds like the coot and the wild duck, while tortoises peep out a few inches from the surface of freshwater.
Another reservoir of great naturalistic and historic interest, is the pond of Calich, on the western side of Alghero, near Fertilia. The pond is inside the area of the regional park of Porto Conte and represents an ecosystem for different plants and faunal species. The Roman bridge stands out, and is, along with the Roman villa of Sant’Imbenia, one of the few ruins left of the Imperial Age.
We must go back about 6000 years, to the Neolithic age, to get an idea of the history of the Alghero territory. The area is full of stunning historical and archeological finds, dating back to the Prenuragic and Nuragic ages, like the hypogean necropolises of Santu Pedru (Saint Peter) and Anghelu Ruju (Red Angel, or rather the Devil), as well as the Nuragic villages of Palmavera and Sant’Imbenia; all places which are easily reachable from the tourist centre, ArchiMete Sardegna. Specifically, in Sant’Imbenia, during the Ninth century B.C., Phoenicians established an important commercial port by exploiting the natural shelter of the inlet of Porto Conte and the presence of freshwater springs.

Food & Culture: a mix that belongs to Italy. In particular to Sardinia, the cradle of nuragic civilization, but also of wonderful typical products manufactured by skilled craftsmen:Logo beach bar per sito eng OK winemakers, shepherds, butchers, fishermen, artisans of wood, metal, stone, leather and thousand other raw materials offered by the land of Sardinia.
Wine, cheese, olive oil, salami, bread, friendship and joy are the tasty toppings of a tour that combines the cultural aspects of the north-west Sardinia to the culinary tradition of the island.
Aboard a comfortable air-conditioned minibus we discover the main archaeological sites inside and around the Regional Nature Park of Porto Conte. Such as the necropolis of Anghelu Ruju, the Nuraghe Palmavera, the promontory of Capo Caccia (Unesco heritage) and the Nature Park of Porto Conte. Its headquarters offers a botanical garden and nature trail, and a museum dedicated to the old penal colony of Tramariglio.
The tour alternates cultural moments to visits to famous local wineries, farms and dairy laboratories where tastings of typical products are not an option, but a real must!
The tour starts from Alghero (participants are picked up directly at the accommodation) and lasts half day.

The natural setting of Alghero

From the enchanting seabed to the Caribbean coasts; from the plain rich in vegetation and Mediterranean maquis, to the mountains which are perfect for unforgettable day trips. The territory of Alghero offers every kind of amusement, in close contact with the most wild and uncontaminated nature. The visitor’s eye is caught by the promenade of Alghero and by the unmistakable tortoise-like outline of Capo Caccia, a primary place of naturalistic and cultural interest, which is the heart of two reserves: the Marine Protected Area of Capo Caccia-Isola Piana and the Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte.

Territory

We are located in the heart of the Marine Protected Area of Capo Caccia-Isola Piana and the Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte, directly looking out over the pebble beach of the Tramariglio bay. An out-and-out naturalistic, environmental, and well-positioned paradise, since the many diving, snorkeling and land tour points of the two natural reserves can easily be reached from the bay, which is well-sheltered from the winds and rough seas.

Therefore, the proximity to the town of Alghero, is an explicit invitation to organize a fascinating tour among the historical and cultural treasures of the ancient Catalan town.
