Cattedrale di Sant'Antonio Abate e Museum Ampuriense

Reviewed By SunriseSki - Singapore

Nice walk in the narrow streets around the main hill.
Better leave the car down and walk up the stairs to the top of the hill where from a fortress-like construction you can overlook the town, it's port, and the coast on both sides, During the Summer it is a hot climb, and by the time you reach the top, you'll be probably soaked wet. Even inside the churches (which are all quite nice and give a true impression of local culture and history) it is not much cooler. There a few souvenir shops and several restaurants. People are nice and welcoming, it is worthwhile to stop for a bite, some drinks, continue for a short walk in the maze of small roads were around every corner you wonder what might come. We enjoyed this town a lot.

It's worth visiting mostly because of the beautiful panoramic views, tiny streets and nice cafes and restaurants around. The Castello itself is not very impressive.

Roccia dell'Elefante

Reviewed By SteveS1970 - Coventry, United Kingdom

Strange that a stone shaped like an elephant should be high up on the things to see nut it is truly impressive. This becomes more fascinating when you get closer and it seems to have been some ancient tomb, with small holes for bodies visible. The original Sardinians where said to be small and they would need to be to be placed here.

Red flags were flying so no swimming allowed. We just paddled and messed about. Fantastic public beach with bars nearby. Well worth a visit. Lifeguard has a lot of beach to cover for one person.

Museo dell'Intreccio Mediterraneo

Reviewed By MarieFl - Zurich, Switzerland

I'm sorry to say we found this museum to be extremely boring. They've gone to a lot of trouble to present various aspects of the basket-weaving traditions in Sardinia, but it's still a snoozefest. Great views can be had from the various terraces and bars on the castle rock, so there's no need to visit the castle itself.

Nuraghe Paddaggiu

Reviewed By raffaele g - Pescara, Italy

In aperta campagna-un tronco di cono decapitato. Pietre informi a secco , con poca abilità nella concia delle pietre -non ciclopiche come altri. Interno circolare con tre pietre a chiudere la volta. Basamenti affioranti nella terra a conferma di un sito più ampio e complesso. Utilizzo improprio nel tempo come deposito agricolo.

Palazzo La Loggia

Reviewed By EhudSpe

An amazingly nice place, built in an historic house.
The rooms and the interior of the B&B are comfortable and nicely decorated. The garden around the main building as well. The owner Adriano is very hospitable.
Breakfast was very good.
We enjoyed this place very much and totally recommend it.

Una bella opera di arredo urbano e sistemazione urbanistica di valorizzazione. Lo spazio costruito aperto sul golfo. A ricordo dei 900 anni della nascita del paese. Una visione unica a 360° sul paese e sulla costa. Uno spazio polifunzionale , anche per spettacoli.

I only saw this chapel briefly as we were going from the castle to the Cathedral. Set on a street it does not stand prod and could be missed. Worth a quick look.
