Few know that Sardinia is one of the most mysterious places on earth, and that it is the oldest known land mass in the continent of Europe. That is why the tourist will be surprised by the huge number of archaeological sites dating back to 730 BC, which were discovered only in the seventies of the last century, including about seven thousand stone fortresses and a group of giant statues, some of which are more than 8 feet long, which reinforced the belief that Sardinia was "Home of giants" in ancient times.


As a result of the ancient migrations and the diverse cultures that have come to it, it has become a beautiful mixture of diverse archaeological sites, such as the ancient Phoenician village of "Tharos" on the west coast, and the National Archaeological Museum in the capital, Cagliari, where the antique collections of the prehistoric period, or the Fashion Museum in the town of Neuro Inland, one of the island's most prominent attractions, as it sheds light on folkloric traditions throughout history.


Now the name Sardinia is associated with the notables and the wealthy who prefer it to the Caribbean islands, but spending, even one day, in it, if the budget does not allow more than that, makes the average tourist closely appreciate its beauty, and enjoy its climate, terrain and sea, in addition to the many activities it provides.


Almost every region has its own traditions, as it is still one of the few Italian places where men and women wear traditional costumes at weddings, events and special holidays. They are rich in outfits and jewelry with details that change stitching and color every 10 kilometers. Variety also applies to her cuisine.



For example, the Costa Smeralda, located on the northeastern side of the island, is famous for its goat and sheep milk and cheese, as well as cured meat that comes from the surrounding mountains, and the traditional flavors of pasta that include meat as well, such as “orkite” with “ragweed” meat, and “ Ravioli »stuffed with potatoes and cheese, while Capras, which is found on the western side of Sardinia, a large salt lake from which the famous Portaga roe comes out, is famous for fish and dishes based on seafood.


Also, Alghero, located in the northwest part of the island, is due to the presence of fishermen who specialize in catching crabs and tuna. What is exciting in this part of Sardinia and its neighboring islands such as San Pietro is the Spanish influence, along with other cultures that have flocked to it and affected its cuisine and life tangibly. However, Alghero remains in the northwestern coast, one of the places most affected by Spanish culture, as some of its residents still speak the dialect of “Algérie”, one of the many dialects of Catalonia, and the town’s historic center still bears the name “Barceloneta”.
