Capo Caccia and Ancient Nuraghe-Sardinia
We drove about 15 minutes west of Alghero to Capo Caccia, but we did not take the 656 steps down to the Grotto entrance. This whole area is gorgeous, but again you need a car to explore Sardegna.
After about a half hour drive east of Alghero, we visited Sassari’s Santa Maria chiesa (church) on our way east.
Another 30 minute drive east of Sassari, in the distance, we finally came upon an ancient tower –the remains of the Nuraghe civilization, built between 1800BC and 500BC. We thought we’d see clusters of buildings, but somehow we just found one off in the distance. So much for the ancient civilization. I’m sure there are many more to view in larger numbers but, we preferred finding the white sandy beaches and perfectly clear water.
Here is the map of our six-day journey around the northern 15% of the island. Traveling from Olbia to Porto Cervo, to Maddalena Island, to Alghero, Pelosa Beach, Capo Caccia, Sassari, Ozieri, and San Teodoro. There is so much more to see in Sardinia, and I plan on discovering it.
