Castelsardo is a charming coastal town whose destiny has always been linked to the sea. In ancient times it was both a defence post and a strategic watchpoint. The old town, perched on a hill beside the sea, has preserved its medieval fortress structure, with soaring bastions, steep stairways and a maze of narrow streets and alleys.
The many spectacular beaches in the area are ideal for sailing and windsurfing, especially Punta La Capra, Punta Li Paddimi and Lu Bagnu.
The town’s folk traditions come to the fore during the Easter Week celebrations, with strong Spanish influence, attended by faithful from across Sardinia.
