A unique environmental heritage. The Porto Conte regional park, founded in 1999, covers fifty thousand hectares of coat and hinterland of Alghero. The territory is mostly flat and includes 60 kilometres of shore: sandy beaches alternate with steep cliffs. Its southern limit is the Calich lagoon, the “lung” of various animal species. To the north there are Monte Doglia and the Porto Conte bay. Its territory includes the spectacular landscapes of Punta Giglio and Punta Cristallo, Porticciolo and Cala Viola, the grottos of Capo Caccia and Le Prigionette forest, once called “Noah’s Ark forest”, as deer, Giara horses and white donkeys have been introduced here.
