Two beautiful and charming Sardinian towns
CASTELSARDO is a picturesque historic town on the northern coast of Sardinia. The old town, fortified with a castle, is an interesting and atmospheric place to visit for a very special day out. There are attractive restaurant tables in historic lanes, and shops selling all kinds of Sardinian handicrafts and other souvenirs. CASTELSARDO's castle, the Castello dei Doria, houses the Museo dell'Intreccio, a museum of basket-weaving, an important local handicraft.
The castle was built by the Doria family of Genoa, and for several years in the fourteenth century Castelsardo, then called Castelgenovese, was the home of a Doria bride: the Sardinian heroine Eleanora d'Arborea.
In the heart of the Gallura, amidst impressive granite rocks, wild "macchia", cork and Holm oaks, lies the beautiful TEMPIO PAUSANIA.

Just before arriving at Castelsardo we will visit the Rock of the Elephant, a prehistoric tomb of 2400 B. C.
