Located on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Asinara, in the north west of Sardinia, Castelsardo starts taking shape from a distance: through the mosaic of little colourful houses appearing along the way. Trapped between the sky, the sea and granitic stones, Castelsardo is a medieval village renown as one of the most beautiful in Italy. It is a Sardinian corner of around 5 thousands inhabitants, spending their life among its picturesque architecture.
Walking through the old town’s narrow streets, it is likely to meet artisans sitting outside of their ateliers while handcrafting traditional rafia baskets, as well as small shops and taverns where the top quality recipes are enriched with the usual conviviality of the locals.
All directions converge at the Castel: as the city’s highest point, the Castel, historical centre of Castelsardo, today hosts the popular Museum of Weaving Art, while offering a stunning view over the sea and the coastline of both North Sardinia and Corsica.
The beauty of Castelsardo spreads all around its peripheral areas. For those willing to go a little further than the always comfortable sea sites such as Lu Bagnu and Isola Rossa, after 50-minute drive it appears La Pelosa. La Pelosa is among the beaches that have made this coast one of the most fascinating in the whole island. White sand and blue-painted sea overwhelmed by a wild nature, still mostly virgin and pure. This is a must!
