Alghero is a town of 42000 inhabitants, which overlooks the homonymous bay in the north-west of Sardinia Island. Founded at the beginning of the twelfth century by the Genovse Doria family as a fortified port, remained almost continuously under the rule of the Republic of Genoa until the middle of the '300.
It was then conquered by the Aragonese and was able to grow and expand economically also through the establishment of the first settlers of Catalan origin. To the Catalan domination followed the Habsburgs of Spain, under King Charles V, which lasted until the beginning of the eighteenth century. After that Alghero and Sardinia were ceded to the Kingdom of Piedmont. In more recent times, after the war broke out, Alghero is known as an international tourist destination.
