CASTELSARDO AND ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD
In the northern part of Sardinia, on the Gulf of
Asinara, stands Castelsardo, a picturesque village
clinging to the top of a conic hill, with an
extraordinary view on the Gulf, the mountainous
region of Gallura and the first sight of Corsica.
The town belonged first to the Genoese Doria
family, and later to the Aragonese.
The medioeval town and its citadel, Porto
Fringianu, the Cathedral dedicated to St. Antonio
Abbate, various domus de janas and the Rock of the
Elephant, all contribute to make a stop in
Castelsardo worth a visit.
Moving from this town to the south, the visitor
can reach the small villages of Tergu (the church
of St. Maria di Tergu), Bulzi (the church of St.
Pietro delle Immagini) and Perfugas (the church of
St. Giorgio and the fascinating petrified forest).
